Mootools JavaScript Framework

About Mootools

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.

Mootools Review by ajaxBlender

This was our preferred framework in the past, prior to jQuery releasing their latest version. Overall the Mootools framework is efficient and compact, has a good community and plugins available for it. It is a good tool for general website development, but we do not recommend it for development of advanced web applications.

Recently it seems that the Mootools team has stopped updating their website and the documentation and  demos are not very good. Their previous version of the site was much better.

If you are a newbie trying to choose between which JS frameworks to use, we do not mean to scare you away from Mootools.  And we certainly don’t want to offend fans of Mootools :)…  It’s still one of the most popular frameworks out there. We work with Mootools and support it via our custom AJAX development service, but it just needs a little less complex syntax and better documentation. We are looking forward to Mootools’ next release.
