About Performer

For beginners:

Performer allows you to add really cool effects and features to your website by doing some simple editing of the HTML code in your pages. Download Performer here and get up and running in seconds.

For intermediate developers:

Performer allows you to easily add JavaScript features – like AJAX stuff – to your pages using nothing but CSS classes and other standard element attributes, like rel and rev. There are a wide range of features available and Performer works with jQuery, MooTools and Prototype.

For advanced developers:

Prototype allows you to easily add JavaScript features to your pages using nothing but CSS classes and other standard element attributes. Using the power of a JavaScript library (there’s a list of libraries Performer supports below) means you have to write less JavaScript code to get things done. But even that isn’t enough. For simple effects and functions wouldn’t it be great to add the JavaScript functionality as you build the HTML of a page? See the Getting Started section for some simple examples.

To be clear; Performer works with your JavaScript library to make it easier to add simple functionality to your page. While it may be possible to write an entire complex web application interface using Performer, I don’t recommend it. Check out the Documentation for full details on all features Performer supports.
