I’m excited to tell you that MooTools 1.2.3 has been released today! It’s mainly bug fixes and updates. One major change is compatibility with other frameworks. Like the MooTools-Dev team, I do not advise using more than one framework. But if you have to.. then you have to. See below for a list of changes, straight from the cows mouth! Read more

You should already know that MooTools has Fx.Morph, that allows you to animate multiple css properties on an element and you can also pass it a selector string so you don’t have to type out all of the properties.

Some classes I’ve come across do a lot and are inflexible. I’ve seen some that are semantically incorrect when it comes to creating/using elements that the user has no control over. So I’ve been mulling over the idea of rewriting/cleaning/correcting some of these classes that I come across in hopes to make them flexible and simple. Well, I decided to have a go at it, obviously
I understand it’s like re-inventing the wheel. But in order to improve, we should always scrutinize work because a better solution may be available.
Here’s my first attempt, with the MooTools class, TextOverlay. If you look closely, it’s MooTools-More OverText modified to give the user more options. Read more

Christoph, one of MooTools’ developers and creator of Styx, a PHP framework, created a MooTools based File Manager. I’ve tried out his demos, and everything seems VERY slick. It has loads of features too. Read more

Looks like there are some goodies from the Core:
MooTools 1.2.2 is a mainly a bug fix release but it also includes an almost entirely new Class.js. The reasoning behind this is that the old Class.js didn’t play nicely with some advanced usages of this.parent() present in the new MooTools-More. We already had the script ready and tested in the MooTools 2.0 branch so we simply “backported” it to 1.2.2. Other than providing the parent fixes, the new Class also features a much more robust inheritance model, especially when dealing with objects.
And something for the More:
One of the new features of MooTools-More, since the last RC, is that it is now possible access the previous state of overwritten methods of classes through Class.refractor.
And last bit of exciting news: quick/regular new feature bi-weekly releases.
Way to go team! Thank you for the awesome work!

I use Smarty, a template engine, at work. One of the most awesome things about it is the debug window, where it can list all the templates being used and variables that are available.
Mike Horn shared with me how a user, named Hipska, created a Smarty debug template file that works with Firebug. I thought it was so awesome and decided to share it with you too, but with a slight tweak of my own. Read more

You’ve heard of selector engines right? The engine that parses the HTML to match a string argument to return matching HTML elements? How about Sizzle and Peppy (two fast selector engines) that was released? Or how a couple JS frameworks were implementing Sizzle and the MooTools dev team decided not to follow suit?
Now, have you heard of Sly, the new selector engine on the block? No? That’s because Harald Kirschner just released it yesterday, 03/25/09, and I can’t tell you how awesome it is.. or can I?
I’ll start you off with a brief description… and graphs! Read more« go back — keep looking »
