This Moo’s For You! MooTools 1.2 Has Arrived!

By on  

U2's been singing this week because Monday was a beautiful day. Monday marked the release of MooTools 1.2, a landmark release. CNET's Aaron Newton (and MooTools developer) was so blown away by Valerio and Co's new ideas that he wanted to name this release 2.0 but Valerio chose to keep this version as 1.2. If you'd like details on the new improvements, please visit the MooTools blog.

Even though Moo 1.2 was just officially released, I've been delivering no-bull MooTools 1.2 articles for months now. Download the newest Moo and check out my articles:

  • LightFace:  Facebook Lightbox for MooTools

    One of the web components I've always loved has been Facebook's modal dialog.  This "lightbox" isn't like others:  no dark overlay, no obnoxious animating to size, and it doesn't try to do "too much."  With Facebook's dialog in mind, I've created LightFace:  a Facebook lightbox...

  1. Well, since I’ve started reading your articles, I’ve seen countless mentions of MooTools, yet I’ve been in the dark; time to change this.

    Do you have anything you’d recommend to start me off?

  2. @Will: You should have mentioned this earlier! The more Moo, the better!

    I suggest starting with “Using MooTools For Opacity”. It covers some basic Moo usage. From there, move on to “Basic Ajax Requests Using MooTools 1.2″. Be sure to have the MooTools documentation open in another window.

    Moo is a lot of fun — go for it!

  3. MooTools is great! It’s my only choice at this moment. And it has great documentation.
    You can very easily extend it using your own classes and the framework itself is fully modular.

    It changed my life as a web-developper, I am very curious about its future.
