Delayed Image Preloading Using Mootools

It’s almost three months ago since my last post! I’m quite busy at the moment. That’s why I’ll just write a quickie on delayed image preloading using Mootools (1.2.1, also might work with 1.2 and 1.1).

Writing A Feed Reader

Yesterday I was playing around with the Google AJAX Feed API. With the API, you can download any public Atom or RSS feed using only javascript. By mixing the Google AJAX Feed API with MooTools 1.2, I wrote a tiny feed reader application in 30 lines of javascript goodness.

Mootools Puzzle Game

I wrote a pretty useless puzzle game that makes use of Mootools. I was updating the ‘about’ page on this blog, and I was looking for an original way to show a picture of myself. So take a look at the the about page and play around with it.

Update: Mootools CSS Styled Scrollbar

I’ve updated my previous post Mootools CSS Styled Scrollbar. I’ve added instructions about how to make it work with Mootools version 1.11. Also the example is updated.

You can see the updated example over here.

Mootools CSS Styled Scrollbar

I wrote a small piece of javascript that creates a css styled scrollbar from the Mootools (version 1.2b2) Slider class. I know there is a scrollbar class for Mootools but it’s more than 100 lines of code. If you only need one or two bars, try my solution instead. The example page shows three div elements with a styled horizontal and/or vertical scrollbars.

The Mootools Download Builder Bookmarklet

Personally, I love Mootools download builder. There’s just one feature that is missing, it becomes very annoying everytime I needs the entire Mootools library. I can remember the old (?) download builder had a “check all” button, which included (checks) all Mootools components to the file I was about to download. Nowadays, the download builder doesn’t have this feature anymore. Well, actually the download builder has the functionality to check all components, but it lacks a button. I wrote a bookmarklet that let’s you do the trick.

I’m writing this article because my old article about the Mootools ajax class is outdated because of the API changes in Mootools version 1.0. This article will be an update of the previous article.
