A lot of people are starting to take advantage of Mootools, not only in 1.5 but also in 1.0. Anthony Olsen from Joomla Bamboo is foremost among the. He has just redesigned and relaunched joomlabamboo.com so it seems a good time to point out some of the great work he’s doing.
Joomla Bamboo’s Best Mootools Work
Originally Anthony was working on several Mootools mambots and modules, but lately he’s started to integrate the scripts into his template designs – not just for effect, but for core functionality:
- The Slider and Scroller templates that use Mootools for module positions on the screen’s edge.
- MooFlip which replaces one div with another creating a nice sliding effect
- Hover Box which is a neat little gallery for content items.
- Bamboo FAQ Module which provides an expandable FAQ page.
