What this will hopefully become is the following:

A simple semantic set of HTML5 templates to use for iPhone / iPad UI elements and associated CSS
Pure CSS3 animations for various transitions
A miniature build of MooTools
Simple API for Audio and Video embedding, geolocation & maps API
Helpers for common application tasks using local storage
Further down the line I would hope to also include:

More themes / theming support
A simple iPhone application project, which basically runs a HTML5 site wrapped in a Safari frame
More complex application functionality (for instance user login / authentication)
Sample .NET MVC / PHP projects
HTML5 Templates

Pretty obvious really but nice simple Object Oriented CSS for all common UI elements, such as forms, tabs, menus, lists etc. I would try and recreate a few native apps (like settings, photos, contacts, iTunes) to ensure it works.

Wherever possible I would take advantage of Mobile Safari's HTML5 support particularly with forms. A great way to learn about this!


<input type= text placeholder= Enter bar here />

<div class= list>
<li><a href= path/to/file.htm class= slide in >Bar</a></li>
CSS3 Animations

I would like to make things like cubed page groups, the ability to slide back and along like switching pages in Safari, and the album artwork viewer in iTunes.

I also want a simple way to link pages or panels with these transitions - simple classes and a panel handler in MooTools. Some examples of the classes I'm thinking of:

fade in
slide direction
flip round, flip direction
travel (?) direction(index) - like in Mobile Safari, going from tab 1 to tab 6
Mini MooTools

Hopefully we can get a mobile webkit build of MooTools - it would be so tiny. Especially

※ 最近のAPPストアなどでのアップルの対応を見ていると下り坂に差しかかった企業の様に思えてなりません。アップルコンピュータには大きな恩がある私ですが、クパチーノの本社や独立したクラリスのあの何者も仲間にする雰囲気はどこかに消えてしまいましたね。何時訪ねてもワクワクしたものでした。心底懐かしいです。
