MooTools Slick Selector Engine

A new standalone selector engine that is totally slick!

Create your own custom pseudo-classes!

Ever want to make your own :my-widget(rocks) pseudoclass? Now you can!

Use your own custom getAttribute code!

EG: Use MooTool's Element.get method or jQuery's $.attr

Use your own parser!

Want to support XPATH selectors? JSONPath selectors? Pre-cached JS Object selctors? Just swap out the default parser and make your own.

Use the parser by itself!

Want to integrate a CSS3 Selector parser into your own app somehow? Use the slick selector CSS3 parser by itself and get a JS Object representation of your selector.

MooTools Slick CSS Selector Parser

Parse a CSS selector string into a JavaScript object
