The Story of Wijmo

Wijmo was born out of necessity; we needed it! We are in the business of building UI controls for developers like you. Largely focusing on Web tools, we have leveraged jQuery heavily in the Web tools. When we wanted to completely rebuild our Web tools, we looked to jQuery UI. It was perfect for what we wanted: a powerful, yet lightweight framework for JavaScript UI components. There was only one problem with committing to using it: the lack of UI widgets. Since we embraced jQuery and jQuery UI, we decided to build on top of them, using their frameworks and guidelines. This, my friends, was the birth of Wijmo.
