Why use Jangaroo?
There are two main use cases when you might want to use Jangaroo tools:
For example, you want to
- create OpenSocial widgets, Facebook applications, or just another Google Maps mashup in AS3
- let your existing ActionScript 3 application run in the browser without a Flash plugin
- share utility classes or business logic implementations between a Flex version and a pure browser variant of your application
Granted, some of these examples are still rather visions where some more work needs to be put into Jangaroo libraries and API emulations. But many applications are already possible, and since Jangaroo is open source, you can contribute to increase the possibilities!
