A lil’ about Gaia
Gaia is an open-source front-end Flash Framework that allows fully functional Flash sites to be created in less than one hour! Yes this is true.

  • A simple API for navigation, transitions, preloading, and asset management makes development a snap!
  • Deep Linking achieved through seamless integration with SWFAddress
  • SEO Scaffolding makes Search Engine Optimization as easy as pressing a button
  • Easy enough for novices
  • Powerful enough for experts
