MooTools Zoomer Plugin
I love to look around the MooTools Forge. As someone that creates lots of plugins, I get a lot of joy out of seeing what other developers are creating and possibly even how I could improve them. One great plugin I've found is Zoomer by Anton Samoylov. Zoomer provides an elegant method for zooming in on large images.
<img src="cricci.jpg" alt="Muse: Christina Ricci" big="cricci-large.jpg" id="ricci" />
Note the big attribute within the image is where the you place the path to the larger image. This is the default usage of the plugin -- you may also provide the path to the larger image within the plugin instance options object.
big: 'cricci-large.jpg' */
Using Zoomer is as easy as the code above -- simply provide the ID of the image and the custom smooth setting. As mentioned above, you may also define the larger image path within the instance.
Sweet huh? My praise goes out to Anton for his excellent plugin. I love how easy this plugin is to implement. Remember though -- Zoomer is just one of hundreds of quality plugins in the MooTools Forge. Are your plugins in the Forge?
