The new version of iPhoto, announced not too long ago, features Web Gallery, a way to export your photo library to a .Mac web share. The sample gallery confirms that these Ajax‐heavy galleries use Prototype and Scriptaculous under the hood. It could not make me happier that Apple seem to have adopted the two libraries company‐wide.

Here’s something I worked on for a few hours just to amuse myself. I’d develop it further, but I can’t see how this has any sort of practical use (also note the caveats at the top of the script). So here it is: a web page desaturator. Takes all colors in linked stylesheets and turns them into grayscale versions. Here’s a demo using a page from the Prototype site. Firefox only.

Prototype 1.5.1, release candidate 1. This one contains my complete $$ overhaul, so if you query by CSS selector at all then you need to download this right now. Once 1.5.1 gets a final release (and when I’m once again sober) I’ll write a lot more about this.

Alex Russell unveils dojo.query, the latest gauntlet tossed down in the fetching‐elements‐by‐CSS‐selector wars. I’m working on a similar overhaul for Prototype which I’ll talk more about when the time is right.

Prototype Core. Qualified to write a JavaScript library, to be sure, but clearly unqualified to speak about hair care. (I include myself in this assessment.)
