Using script.aculo.us in your code




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <script 
        src="/javascript/prototype.js">
    </script>
  
    <script 
        src="/javascript/scriptaculous.js">
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h2>Welcome To GFG</h2>
  
    <p>
        Default code has been loaded 
        into the Editor.
    </p>
</body>
  
</html>

By default, including scriptaculous.js includes all the effects available. But if you want to include only some effects you can specify using the following code-

<script src = “/javascript/scriptaculous.js?load = effects,dragdrop”></script>
