abstract:

One of the most common problems a web developer usually face is related to continuously rotate a fragment of content. It can be a presentation of headlines, small fragments of news or a list of thumbnails. The nature of the thing being rotated doesn't matter too much here because all those kind of applications share always the same idea: Rotating. This objective can be achieve in different ways like fading and scrolling. Well here is iCarousel becomes useful. It's a one step forward trying to generalize all those types of widgets providing a rich presentation and making the task easy to be done.

examples:

browser compatibility:

iCarousel is compatible and tested in Internet Explorer, Firefox (and its mozilla friends), Opera and Safari (thanks Kamicane for testing it). But it should work in other browsers too... If you successfully find another compatible browser, please let me know ;)

features:

iCarousel is fully configurable. You can change any default option just initializating the class with an object in JSON. The following options are available:

how to use:

First of all, iCarouse is built over MooTools v1.1, so both libraries are required.
Get MooTools at http://mootools.net and iCarousel here. Use IceBeat Packito to see mootools dependences.
With scripts in hands, include them between your "head" definition:

Initialize the iCarousel class:

That's it, at this rate you should be able to see iCarousel creating a news ticker with the elements with a class "item".
