10 Advance MooTools Scripts to Outshine your Industry

Ahmed August 4, 2009 4

Following my previous JavaScript article on jQuery – 10 Advance jQuery Scripts to take Your Website to the Next Level – Where I showcased some awesome jQuery scripts, I thought it good to do the same with MooTools.

I could have called this post “50 Advance MooTools Scripts” but kept it at 10 as otherwise you would lose interest and many of the scripts would have been useless. Thus, 10 is the special number today!


MooTools is a compact, modular, Object-Oriented JavaScript framework designed for the intermediate to advanced JavaScript developer. It allows you to write powerful, flexible, and cross-browser code with its elegant, well documented, and coherent API.

Similar to jQuery, MooTools is another very popular JavaScript framework to help do more with less code. I have selected some awesome MooTools script you can use to help outshine the your industry!

Advanced Mootools

Calendar (to input dates)

A cool looking calendar by which you can easily select dates.

  • Style-able and semantic XHTML
  • Highly configurable use of inputs and selects
  • Future/past restrictions
  • Multi Calendar Support
  • And much more!



Turn’s a selected element into a ‘window’, or viewport, and all its children into absolutely positioned layers that can be seen through the viewport. These layers move in response to the mouse, and, depending on their dimensions (and options for layer initialisation), they move by different amounts, in a parallaxy kind of way

Complicated, I know… See the effect in action and you’ll understand in a second!


An elegant upload script:

FancyUpload is a file-input replacement which features an unobtrusive, multiple-file selection menu and queued upload with an animated progress bar. It is easy to setup, is server independent, completely styleable (is that a word?) via CSS and XHTML and uses MooTools to work in all modern browsers


Not your standard checkbox.


Just click any field and start editing it. As soon as you move away from the field, it regains all of its formatting.

  • Designed for PHP/MySQL. (Works with other also)
  • Degradable to work without JavaScript
  • Very customisable


Customise scroll bars beyond your imagination. Strictly for the Geek only…


Nice horizontal/vertical menu effect.

Slider with Range Indicator

Select a maximum and minimum value using a slider. You can customise the look how you like!

Horizontal Image Menu

Very nice! (With quite a few options!)

Kroppr – image cropping script

Impress all your users with this fine script. An image cropping tool that is able to rotate, zoom and move the image in the real time without using plugin’s – such as flash or java.

It’s very simple to implement also!


Who said jQuery was the only JavaScript library that’s cool. MooTools can be cool too!

If I was asked to recommend one above the other, I wouldn’t give a definite answer. It all depends on what your requirements are. Thereafter, you need to research both scripts and see which would be best for you in the long term!
