Floom is an extendible blinds-like slideshow widget for MooTools.

How to use

There are two ways of setting Floom up. One is the object way, where you specify the image url and the caption using the key-value notation:


var slides = [
    image: 'photo-1.jpg',
    caption: 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit'
    image: 'photo-2.jpg',
    caption: 'Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident'

$('blinds').floom(slides, {
  axis: 'vertical'


<div id="blinds"></div>

The second one is by simply passing a element collection, ie. $$('#blinds img'), where the passed element has to be the actual image collection. In this scenario the caption is the elements title attribute:


$('blinds').floom($$('#blinds img'), {
  axis: 'vertical'


<div id="blinds">
  <img title="Description 0" alt="" src="nature-photo0.jpg" />
  <img title="Description 1" alt="" src="nature-photo1.jpg" />
  <img title="Description 2" alt="" src="nature-photo2.jpg" />
  <img title="Description 3" alt="" src="nature-photo3.jpg" />
  <img title="Description 4" alt="" src="nature-photo4.jpg" />


All options have default values assigned, hence are optional.
