During the last GSoC, Jangouts was ported to work on Angular 2. Among other goodies, like the component-based approach or ditching the
$scope thingie, Angular 2 leverages the use of observables thanks to its integration with RxJS.
However, when the project started, our student (who did a great job) had to fight^Wwork with a beta version of Angular 2 and, unfortunatelly, the API changed before the release of the final version.
Some weeks ago we were working to fix the Angular 2 branch of Jangouts and, at that time, we decided that we would like to explore a different approach to handle data and events.
So this one is just a reseach project to find out if changing the current approach pays off. And of course, although we only have one week, we are open to consider another cool options like Redux (after all, we already have an ActionsService which is somehow similar to the idea of actions in the Flux architecture). And maybe ngrx/store is the way to go.
