After sorting through tons of scripts, I thought I’d share the best ones with you.
Reference Sheet (jq)
Each one of these reference sheets (cheat sheets) are crammed with functions and usage for jQuery. (They are slightly outdated. If you know of any jQuery reference sheets recently updated, please let me know.)
Reference Sheets (PDF): Page 1 – Page 2
Multiple File Uploads (jq)
The point of this AJAX-enabled script is to give the user a visual sandbox to add/delete uploads, all without ever reloading the page. The examples and documentation are topnotch.
Fyneworks – Multiple File Upload
Table Sorting (jq)
Polyester – Tablesorter
A List of 240 Plugins (jq)
Rather then regurgitating what’s already on the net, here’s a site that lists over 240 jQuery plugins and their respective links. It’s freaking huge.

Reference Sheet (mt)
Being that MooTools is so simple to use, you may not even need a cheat sheet. But just in case, Snook has put together a colorful dab of MooTools knowledge for your enjoyment.
Snook – Mootools r83 Cheatsheet
MooRainbow has to be one the best looking color pickers I’ve seen for the web that isn’t Flash. It’s almost an exact clone of the color picker used in Photoshop, and again, it’s for the web. Sweet stuff people, sweet stuff.
Woolly Sheep – mooRainbow
The presentation is similar to the default pan/zoom of Apple’s screensaver.
Electric Prism – Slideshow
Copix – Charts & Graphs
Calendar / DatePicker (mt)
Made by the same badasses that created Mediabox (above), this date picker is super-stylish and easy to integrate into your website. Never again should your web user have to manually insert a date.
Electric Prism – DatePicker
FancyUpload is a stylish presentation of uploads and ability to add/remove your upload queue with a mouse click. Well worth a look for anyone presenting upload options on their site.
Digitarald – FancyUpload
Keeping with what the header says, this is the motherload of MooTools information – a library for a library, if you will. It’s a complete reservoir of scripts, tutorials, and basic information relating to MooTools.
CNET – MooTools Library
Mocha UI (mt)
Greg Houston – Mocha
Dress a simple table in a MooTable script and you instantly have the ability to sort any column with the click of the mouse. Easy to setup and extremely lightweight.
Joomlicious – Mootable
Reflection JS (mt)
Reflection JS beautifully adds a perfect reflection to any image without the need for manual labor. The background opacity, height, and fade can be controlled as shown on the Reflections website.
Digitalia – Reflection JS
Reference Sheet (p)
Made by the same killer dude that created the MooTools cheat sheet, Snook delivers some Prototype help in the same yummy, cheat sheet fashion.
Snook – Prototype Cheat Sheet
An obvious must-have for Prototype users. Script.aculo.us provides an amazing library of visual styles (including the ability to drag-and-drop) and works flawlessly on the Prototype library.
Really Easy Field Validation (p)
Exactly what the header says – convert any form into an instantly-validating machine.
Tetlaw – Really Easy Field Validation
Add a beautiful progress bar to your application and start singing songs of joy. This is by far the easiest (and best looking) progress bar script you’ll find on the internet.
Bram – jsProgressBarHandler
This is an excellent script in that it’s simple, yet extremely helpful. The techniques of EditInPlace are used in applications like Basecamp and Facebook, and probably everywhere else on the internet.
Prototype Window (p)
Prototype Windows is an extremely advanced version of Lightbox. Create popup windows on-the-fly with ajax calls, or via common href application. Anything’s possible.
Xilinus – Window/
