midori is an ultra-lightweight[1]JavaScript library that aims to make JavaScript web development easier. It was created by Aycan Gulez and hasn't been updated since June 2010.


  • DOM element selection using CSS selectors
  • Tabs
  • Drag and Drop
  • Effects
  • Pop-up menus
  • Ajax with history support
  • Autocomplete
  • Inline Edit
  • Table row selection
  • DOM, cookie, form, string and array utility methods


midori consists of 10 modules and is available as a single JavaScript file. It can be included within any web page by using the following markup:

<script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/midori.js"></script>

midori allows the use of standard CSS syntax to access DOM elements, and supports most CSS2 and CSS3 selectors.[2] There are three ways to work on returned DOM elements.

  • Passing JavaScript code to modify a single property, using the built-in apply() method:
// Sets the background color of all the cells in even rows to "yellow" in the "cities" table
midori.get('#cities tr:nth-child(even) td').apply('style.backgroundColor = "yellow"');
  • Passing a function that takes a single parameter for more complex operations, again using the apply() method:
// Marks the cells whose values are 12 or bigger in the "cities" table
midori.get('#cities td').apply(function (o) {
  if (parseInt(o.innerHTML) >= 12) o.style.backgroundColor = 'red';
  • Directly accessing array entries returned by midori.get() is also possible.
// Returns the first div element
var firstDiv = midori.get('div')[0];
