Long time without updates but I have been away since mid December. Long story short, went to Bulgaria with the best of intentions to ski a little and ended up “enjoying” the warmest winter this country has had in over 20 years instead. Meanwhile, folks back home in London reported to be freezing their privates in some serious sub-zero temperatures. Figures…
Anyway, things of consequence since my departure start with the advent of the mootools forge – finally a meaningful way to distribute plugins for the framework. I should see if any of my code snippets are worth releasing (can’t all be David Walsh, can it…)
Another notable addition to my bookmarks has been jsfiddle – it’s basically like Zalun’s mooshell but on steroids – adding support for all major frameworks you can fiddle with out there, most excellent and handy when refactoring between mootools and jquery and vice versa.
The biggest joke of the year thus far has been the realisation that this little page (fragged.org) has now become the 2-nd listing on the google SERPs for ‘mootools blog’, trailing the official team blog only. Take that, David Walsh! Oh yeah, and a shiny new PR4 out of the blue, not a bad end to the year. With mootools 1.3 in the pipelines as well as mootools 2.0 – 2010 promises to be an quite exciting as well, looking forward to it.
P.S. Here’s another new ‘#mootools heavy blog’ just launched by a person I have come to respect a great deal over on the mootools mailing list check out Ryan Florence’s blog
