Om,

Check this out;

https://jsfoo.talkfunnel.com/2013/788-using-randorijs-and-kontikijs-to-create-2d-webgl-based-games-from-existing-starling-as3-code

Load this in Chrome;

http://renaun.com/html5/randoristarlingtest/hero.html

That whole thing and the Starling framework was cross compiled with the
Randori compiler I wrote. :)

It uses the same as code! Renaun had to make tweaks but this shows what we
could do if we wanted to.

Mike
