Is the thought of writing web applications in JavaScript getting you down? Does it bring back all the horribly memories from the dark days of ActionScript 1? We’ll it does for me, which is probably why Jangaroo makes me feel all warm and happy inside. What is it? Well basically it allows JavaScript to adopt many of the language features of ActionScript 3, including packages, classes, inheritance, interfaces and private members. Looks interesting.

  1. Self-flagellation for programmers.

  2. Lack of hierarchy isn’t a bad thing 😉 Embrace JavaScript as a prototype based language! Class based languages fit some problems, prototype based ones fit others.
