The Image Gallery is the only tool we have created for Sakai, and it  
was intended, in part, as a demonstration of our early Fluid Infusion

Infusion is a collection of HTML, CSS and JavaScript tools that can be  
used in any Web application, including Sakai. It's usually as simple  
as linking to our JavaScript files in the head of your HTML document,  
and writing a simple initialization block to instantiate the  
components you want to use.

Each component provides a rich set of JavaScript event callbacks that  
you can use to integrate with your Sakai tool or application.  
Generally you'd probably do this through AJAX calls back to the server.

As a starting point, here's a link to our user manual:

For technical documentation, check our API documentation:

You can use the Fluid Skinning System alongside Sakai 2.5. As part of  
the Sakai 3 effort, we're working on more deeply integrating the FSS  
with Sakai.

I hope that helps,
