Slideshow(Mootools 1.2)

Slideshow is a javascript class for Mootools 1.2 to stream and animate the presentation of images on your website. Slideshow is the result of many trials in code attempting to create a javascript class that was lightweight, unobtrusive, a snap to setup (but also highly configurable), extendable and – built using the javascript framework with the best effects – visually very impressive.


New! As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words – see how Slideshow might be used to enhance the presentation of images on your website.



Many revisions later what Slideshow has lost in slimness it has gained in robustness and features:

  • Dynamic resizing – Slideshow can accommodate any size presentation.
  • Thumbnails – intelligent, auto-scrolling, tracking, etc.
  • Full-featured controller – completely style-able with CSS.
  • Animated captions – plain text or formatted with HTML.
  • Fully accessible – Slideshow can be controlled with access keys.
  • Automagic slideshows – create slideshows from existing HTML images.
  • Varied hyperlinking options – Slideshow allows for mashups with Lightbox, Slimbox, etc.
  • CSS slide transitions – designed in stylesheets, not javascript, allow for an infinite combination of effects (plus support for all Robert Penner transitions).
  • Unobtrusive and degradable – Slideshow even functions with Javascript turned off!
