I’m a huge fan of MochiKit, and I have, on more than one occasion mentioned that the guy who wrote it (Bob Ippolito) has more brains than the whole Flash development team put together.
Now, someone has created an animation library on top of MochiKit, called MochiKit.Animator (what else?). I’m a little confused as to the relation between it and MochiKit, and who the author is but that’s not a big issue at this point.
What can I say? This library is animation done right. I don’t shop around for ActionScript animation libraries very much, because the first time I did I cried at the state of things. Using the Tween class makes me cry every time.
Why, why, why are there no developers like Bob, or the author of MochiKit.Animation writing things in ActionScript? Flash and ActionScript have so much potential, and it’s wasted on you lot.
