How to Create a Animated Flip-Down Clock with Mootools

Posted · Category: Calendar, License Free

Nettus has published a tutorial: Learn how to Create a Retro Animated Flip-Down Clock. In the tutorial, we will create an animated flip down clock inspired by the 70’s. Using the Mootools framework, we are trying to replicate the flip action of the pads and make it as lifelike as possible. With it’s retro styling, it could be a really neat thing to add to your website.

The clock is composed of three groups of images: hours, minutes and seconds, which are split in an upper part and a lower part so we can obtain the “flip” effect. The main animation consists of reducing the height of the upper part from 100% to 0%, then increasing the height of the lower part from 0% to 100% for each group in which a digit changes.

How to Create a Google Wave-like History Slider

Posted · Category: Information, License Free

We’ve all seen the videos of Google’s latest product – Wave. Although not “ground-braking” and “revolutionary” as we’ve imagined, it still features some great UI that will surely inspire at least a few developers to implement some of it in their works.

Tutorialzine was one of those inspired people, he showed us how to create a Google Wave-like History Slider. Using it, we will enable our visitors to go back and forth in time to view the changes that take place on a comment thread.

The technologies we are using include PHP as a back-end, MySQL as data storage, jQuery, CSS and XHTML for the front-end with AJAX in between. The slider itself is a component created with jQuery UI.

MooShell – Utility to Test Your MooTools Code

Posted · Category: Code, License Free

We have featured JS Bin 2 days ago. And our lovely readers have pointed out MooShell, which helps us writing and testing HTML, CSS and Javascript too. You can easily debug your Mootools code online with MooShell. Just load the page, edit relevant fields and load the result into an iframe. Also, it does allow to save results for further usage like this example.

However, MooShell is still in an early stage of development and definitely lacks some features. Plans are to implement logging, choice of javascript libraries (currently works with MooTools 1.2.3 only), and more.

Accessible Very Tall Menus with jQuery and CSS

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

The problem with long dropdowns is that the dropdown itself can go below the fold of the website. That is, below the visible area of the browser window. So in order to access those menu items down below, you need to scroll your browser window.

For those of us with scroll wheels of some kind on our mouses, it’s not a big deal. For those without, those lower menu items are totally inaccessible, because to use the browser scrollbar means mousing off the menu and probably having it close.

CSS Tricks has come up with a Solution For Very Long Dropdown Menus, and tell us how to implement a technique where as you scroll down, the menu actually moved in an accelerated fashion. Therefore the menu can be accessible even the user has no scroll wheels on his mouse.

Edit, Test and Debug Javascript Online Collaboratively

Posted · Category: Code, License Free

JS Bin is a webapp specifically designed to help JavaScript and CSS folk test snippets of code, within some context, and debug the code collaboratively.

JS Bin allows you to edit and test JavaScript and HTML. Once you’re happy you can save, and send the URL to a peer for review or help. They can then make further changes saving anew if required.

The original idea spawned from helping developers debugging an Ajax issue. The original aim was to build it using Google’s app engine, but in the end, it was John Resig’s Learning app that inspired Remy Sharp to build the whole solution in JavaScript with liberal dashes of jQuery and a tiny bit of LAMP for the saving process.
