Moo.rd: Extensions to MooTools

Category: JavaScript, Library, MooTools


Moo.rd is an extension library to MooTools that brings you more effects, and helpers for tables, lists, and lightboxes.

You can see examples of the new extensions including:

The new Custom.Alert and Custom.Confirm classes are modal, fixed, and can be draggable, like the standards. But they are “Custom”, so we can give them our personal style, choose an overlay (made by the new Overlay Utility Class) with a custom light, make them appears/disappears with a fade transition and many more.

I want to have the Apple style plus the Windows Style plus my personal style in the page: mission impossible? custom Alerts and custom Confirms, go, make it possible!

The SmoothScrolling class is now for “all smooth needs”. Extending Fx.Scroll, it take advantage of its options, like wheelStops. In addiction, we can choose which anchors must be affected and the Fx parameters of the “effects”.

In the Netherlands, this means “Murder”
Not a very good chosen name….

Very good work, especially the apple alerts and confirms.
Nice the logo, too :)

Don’t forget that in Apple confirms, the Cancel button is on the left :-).

Its not really a big extension of the existing functions. A lot the stuff in moo.rd are realy easy in mootools. Almost all of the of the Effects functions can be done with the default mootools class Fx.Styles.

@M. Stelling: the moo.rd Fx effects, like each others MooTools plug-ins based on native Fx Classes, give a re-usable code: instead of writing 20 lines of code each time, you only need to do one function call.
This is the main cause we have created them.

In addiction, in the next version the’ll be used throughout the entire library: the size will result absolutely reduced and the code more coherent.
