Do you mean the mx UI widgets like mx:TextInput?  Can you provide a list
of which mx classes you are currently using?

Yes, it is theoretically possible.  We don’t have the equivalent of
mx:Tree or mx:AdvancedDataGrid and some other classes yet.  Volunteers are
always welcome to try to create the missing components.

The current FlexJS APIs are a bit different, and some folks are interested
in a more Spark or MX-compatible component set, which could also be
created by volunteers.

You can help just by trying to port your app and telling us what isn’t
working.  And if you can help contribute fixes and missing features, all
the better.  FlexJS has to be created by folks like you.  There isn’t some
corporate entity pushing it.
