ReMooz (v1.0)

Project ReMooz Showcase ReMooz is an open-source widget for great looking and unobtrusive inline-pop-ups, powered by MooTools. It enables how your vistors browse through content, such as thumbnail images and HTML. ReMooz features centered or relative-positioned draggable zoomed images, content preloading, fading captions, with plenty of options and is highly configurable: Add a simple image zoom or create a fancy design element for any graphic that needs to be enlarged on your site.


  • Flickr Bigger ReMooz for previews on flickr photostream thumbnails, large size.
  • Flickr Stream ReMooz for previews on flickr photostream thumbnails, medium size.
  • Simple Caption ReMooz on a Flickr Photostream with captions.


  • No plugins like Flash or Java needed, no problem with popup blockers
  • Unobtrusive behaviour, visitors with disabled JavaScript or old browsers can still click the images to see the full size.
  • Simple and intuitive behaviour: loading-indicator, close button and changing icons describe possible interactions.
  • No obstrusive modal pop-up: your design and content is still visible (not hidden under the common black lightbox effect).
  • Open several instances at one time, e.g. to preview multiple images.

How to use

// Wait for the content ...
window.addEvent('domready', {
     * Assigns ReMooz behavior to all anchors with the .remooz class
     * Or assign ReMooz "by hand"
    $$('ul.thumbnails a').each(function(element) {
        // Constructor, takes the element and options as arguments
        new ReMooz(element, {
            centered: true, // Zoom the center of the screen
            origin: element.getElement('img') // Take the image inside as origin for the zooming element


Fully compatible with all A-Grade Browsers (Internet Explorer 6+, Opera 9, Firefox 1.5+ and Safari 2+)
