I would like to request all the developers to have a look at these stunning applications which are made and developed by Script.aculo.us

Scriptaculous slider trick

Yesterday I was looking at the Scriptaculous library, in particular the slider bar. I had used it once before with some success, using a graphic for the track and gripper. But that’s was boring! What I wanted was to see the bar fill up with colour when it was slide.

For some extra effects you can add Scriptaculous as well. Check the demos below to see what Starbox is all about and read on for more information on how to customize your own Starboxes.

After some careful debugging and research, I was able to pin down the problems with the Mac clients, so I set out again to try and put this to bed. Tonight, I would like to introduce to you Lightbox++. The browser compatibility problems should be resolved, and the script now retains the ability to use regular Lightbox functionality, with the added ability to embed your Flash videos.


JavaScript Image Cropper UI, using Prototype & script.aculo.us

The JavaScript image cropper UI allows the user to crop an image using an interface with the same features and styling as found in commercial image editing software, and is is based on the Prototype JavaScript framework and script.aculo.us.

Initially I performed quite a lot of searching for some ready made solutions to meet my requirements, but found none that had the complete feature set that I required or any complete versions based on Prototype.

So after a week and a half of work, I present the JavaScript image cropper

Fancy Sliding Tab Menu using script.aculo.us

Well I’ve been at it again looking at new ways in which I can make good use script.aculo.us effects. I started by looking at the accordion this time and ways in which it can be developed to produce different results. The most common example that I knew of was the Rico accordion, so that’s where I decided to start.

As you can see below it looks quite cool and can add some nice interaction to any site. At this stage, however, I’m not going to write too much about the code behind it as I am still working on it but I thought it may be interesting for people to have a look at.
