7 MooTools Plugins You Should Use on Every Website II
ScrollSpy is an invaluable tool which listens to the scroll event on any element within the page, allows you to create "virtual zones" to spy on, and allow you to fire specified functionality when the user's browser enter or leaves the zone. I've used ScrollSpy on my website for years and will continue to do so. This compact plugin can have a big impact on your website!
LazyLoad is another plugin that's small in size but big in the fight for cutting down load time. LazyLoad defers the loading of images until the user scrolls within a specified number of pixels of the image. What make the user download images they might never get to the piece of the page that contains them?
SlideShow is the amazing slideshow widget created by MooTools contributor Ryan Florence. SlideShow is extendable, flexible, and easy to implement. SlideShow allows for more than just images too -- any number of elements can added to SlideShow. The masterful plugin also contains built-in transition types so most of the animation is done for you!
TextboxList by Guillermo Rauch is an outstanding plugin for beautifying text INPUT elements which contain comma-separated values. TextboxList was inspired by Facebook and perfected using the MooTools framework. TextboxList is also available for jQuery.
Zoomer is a refreshing take on image magnification. Instead of the lightbox which has grown to be tiresome, Zoomer magnifies portions of an image within the original image's same dimensions. You can focus on different portions of an image by moving your mouse around.
