    Quick Intro:

    Jiggy was an old method of creating apps on the iPhone back in the days of 1.1.x. Anyone with a braincell could make an app with it. But it was never ported to 2.0 and so was lost. Hundreds of apps stopped being created.

    It worked by having a main file which compiled the javascript code which you coded in, back into iphone recognised code to be created.

    Any developer out there willing to TRY and port this to 3.0?

    All the code is open source so if any dev out there has some free time why not look at it?

    i think the fact that it made application creation SO easy is the reason it wouldn't be ported. It is bad enough there are so many "Web Apps" on cydia because they are so incredibly simple to make. This would just up the amount of dumb useless applications that are out there.

    I have never developed with Jiggy before, but I do remember when it was widely used. A few things I can guess about it:
    1) You can not do as much as you can do with Jiggy as you can with the iPhone SDK that Apple provides for us, or even Flash CS5
    2) At the time of jiggy, not every jailbroken user was interested in becoming a developer, so the use of jiggy wasn't so large because only seriously interested develoeprs took the time to use it. Today everyone would take the simplisity of developing in Jiggy and just make dumb apps.

    That is just my take on why Jiggy woulnd't be ported.

    Well done Einstein! But it hints that he wants it closed.
