script.aculo.us: JavaScript Libraries

Category: JavaScript, Library, Prototype, Ruby

<>p>Thomas Fuchs has given birth to: script.aculo.us. (Note to self. Must. Kill. .us domains that make words).

script.aculo.us provides you with easy-to-use, compatible and, ultimately, totally cool JavaScript libraries to make your web sites and web applications fly, Web 2.0 style.

script.aculo.us builds on Prototype, and gives you interesting items such as:

  • Visual Effects: The core effects are Effect2.Opacity(), Effect2.Scale(), Effect2.MoveBy() and Effect2.Parallel(). They get combined to give you: Appear, Fade, Puff, DropOut, Shake, SwitchOff, BlindDown, BlindUp, SlideDown, and SlideUp.
  • Drag And Drop: “Want some more user interaction than the same old INPUT elements and drop-downs? How about drag-and-drop with built-in support for sortable lists, floats and AJAX serializing?”

Great to see libraries like this making app developers lives so much easier.

Does anyone know of any websites that let you display every dictionary word that ends in *us? I wanna buy them all ;-)

You can do a wildcard search for *us on onelook.com

But if you buy up all the .us domains, people will just start registering in the cook islands for the humour value (see also ‘Nathan Barley’…)
