It’s taken far longer than I originally had hoped, but we’ve finally managed to tackle a few big changes here at clientside.
First, there’s a new design. It’s not really much different than the old one, but it’s a bit cleaner and crisper. You should really notice the change in the wikitorials.
Mootorial.com; Updated Wikitorials
Speaking of the wikitorials, we’ve relaunched those, too. You’ll find that all our code for MooTools 1.2, which we relaunched in June, now has tutorials and demos. We released the code when it was ready, but only just now managed to re-author all the tutorials, which were sadly out of date.
Then there’s the MooTorial – the MooTools tutorial that has drawn so many of you here. It’s now moved, officially, to www.mootorial.com. It’s still a part of Clientside and brought to you by CNET, but now it’s seperate from our code and much better organized (and updated for MooTools 1.2, of course).
The MooTools Book!
Well, it took waayyy longer than I would have suspected, but the MooTools book is finally here! You can purchase and download the PDF of the book immediately, or order the paper version, which comes out in the next day or so. You can get the PDF from Apress (the publisher) or order the paperback from Amazon.
The book is over 250 pages of step-by-step instructions on how to use MooTools. It’s similar to the Mootorial in that it covers every class and method in the library, but it’s far more detailed and designed for both advanced programmers and beginners. Hopefully you’ll find it a useful reference and an easy read.
