Need to make a prototype/jquery mootools equivelant
Hey guys, I'm working on a new project where the old developers have created a really crazy environment, where they use both Prototype, jQuery and Mootools.
So until we can convert any existing prototype/jQuery into Mootools code, I need to create a double code base for a new header we're implementing into the site.
jQuery and Mootools are large projects which have been maintained by an experienced team of programmers for years now. If you are asking for pointers on a forum it is technically beyond you. Get a large team and you might be able to do it in a few years. You will be able to port your code to what you need a hundred times before you are able to create a replica.
What I got from your message was that you want to remake something with the functionality of both so you can keep your script the same. Crazy as it sounds its not the craziest question I've been asked; not by a longshot. I'm on my iPhone now so I can't provide much specific help, when I'm back at my desk tonight I'll see what I can do.
I only use jQuery so thats where most of my knowledge is, but they both have enormous amounts of plugins for this sort of things. I've never used it so I can't attest to its quality, but this jQuery script seems to be very close to what you need functionality wise: http://www.webdesigndev.com/web-deve...u-you-ever-saw (demo)
The only issue I'm having up to this point is keeping the hover delay that I have in mootools (so it doesn't instantly start sliding, they have to remain focused on it for 400ms. Any recommendations to accomplish this with the code I have currently?
