Make mootools upgradable in joomla 1.7 please.

Post by anagai » Sat Jun 12, 2010 4:30 am

Joomla is one of the most powerful and useful cms platforms. It excel on its ability to be extensible and flexible to meet any needs. One huge huge giant downside of Joomla is its integration with mootools. You guys made a huge mistake integrating mootools into the core of joomla like you did. Our company have to do work arounds whenever we want to use new features of mootools 1.2. We cannot use mootools 1.2 across the board. This is a big headache. I suggest you figure out somehow to separate mootools from the core and make it upgradable in your behavior file by just changing a file name.

In a ideal world would love to see Joomla integrated with Jquery. Can dream about it at least. We do not want to use jquery and mootools at the same time. This is not the ideal option. Alot of the built in components use mootools by default, so its not like we can turn it off.
