Dev-app update: Multiple configurations, Fiddles

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011 @ 7:03 pm | filed under: Uncategorized

I’ve recently been working on and posting about the development application that makes it easier to get started working on and working with MooTools. For those of you who haven’t followed it, the app is a deployable Django app that lets you see docs, demos, benchmarks, and a builder for any combination of MooTools projects.

Multiple Configs

Today’s release allows you to run more than one configuration at a time:

That means it’s fairly easy to jump between MooTools 1.2, 1.3, etc. What it means here at Clientcide is that users can now browse the docs and download / view multiple past versions (at the moment, only 2.2.0 – the last stable version running on MooTools 1.2 – and the current release).

Support for “Fiddle” demos recently revamped its demo system and now all the demos you see on are in a stand alone git repo.

The demo runner in the dev app now supports these files as well.

Give it a try

As always, the system remains fairly easy to install and play with.

$ git clone git://
$ cd mootools-development
$ ./go install             # or just "./go i"
$ ./go depender_check      # or just "./go d" - this checks the JS dependency tree
$ ./go run                 # runs the server on port localhost:9876

The code can be found on github, of course.
