Getting Jiggy with JavaScript

I’ve recently accepted a position at NextStat and many of the projects I’m working on are ideal candidates for JavaScript flashiness. I played around with Scriptaculous and Prototype but for me the holy grail of JS frameworks is Moooooooootools.

I’ve used a lot of sliders in my code recently and it’s brain-dead simple:

var lislider; window.onload = function() {  lislider = new Fx.Slide('newlineitem'); lislider.hide(); }

And then whenever I want to toggle the slider I use:

lislider.toggle();

What could be easier?  If you want to get started with a VERY powerful, yet lightweight JavaScript framework, give MooTools a try.

Don't be stingy...share with your friends!
