Premium Responsive jQuery Sliders

If you need to find a responsive slider to match your responsive design, then look no further: 12 Premium Responsive jQuery Sliders. I’m not sure what makes a slider premium versus standard, however I’ll leave that to the reader to discern. In the last project where we needed a responsive slider we went with ResponsiveSlides.js, which we were pretty happy with. It’s probably not “premium”, but it does the job.

Cloning the UI of iOS 7 with HTML, CSS and JavaScript

The title should be pretty obvious as to what this is about - Cloning the UI of iOS 7 with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Could be handy as a starting point for a simple app or a learning tool for anyone interested. There’s a live example or you can grab the code on Github. Tags: JavaScript, iOS

Flexible Nav for jQuery

The Flexible Nav jQuery library provides navigation not unlike the sticky tab note things that you might use to annotate large piles of paper documents. Could be very useful when used in the right context. Tags: jQuery, JavaScript

Countdownjs - A simple JavaScript API for producing an accurate, intuitive description of the timespan between two Date instances.

Countdown.js does what you might think – it counts stuff down in JavaScript (or more accurately, as per the title, it is a simple JavaScript API for producing an accurate, intuitive description of the timespan between two Date instances). Tags: JavaScript

csonv.js - A tiny library to fetch relational CSV data at client-side just like JSON

csonv.js comes from the department of “possibly not useful very often, but when it is useful you’ll be glad you knew about it”. There’s still a lot of use of old data formats like CSV out there, and anything that makes it easier to transform them into something sane modern is a good thing. Scary thing is that I actually have an app I can think of right now which might have been made easier if this had been used. Tags: JavaScript

Common JavaScript mistakes and pitfalls you can avoid

If you’ve not read Douglas Crockford’s book, then you should at least read this post: Common JavaScript mistakes and pitfalls you can avoid. After having worked with JavaScript for quite some time, I remember my first time reading about some of JavaScript’s coercion and thinking “Wow, really? That could really mess people up… oh… wait”.

VisualSearch.js– add enhanced autocomplete and auto prompting to your search boxes

VisualSearch.js enhances ordinary search boxes with the ability to autocomplete faceted search queries. Specify the facets for completion, along with the completable values for any facet. You can retrieve the search query as a structured object, so you don't have to parse the query string yourself. It looks pretty neat – although it’s the sort of UI widget which isn’t going to be suitable for every type of search (demo here). Tags: JavaScript, Web Development

WOW Slider is a very slick looking jQuery based image slider effect which has nothing to do with World of Warcraft. Jump straight for the demos if you’ve forgotten or misplaced your Ritalin.

jQuery Image Scroller Plugin

jQuery Image Scroller Plugin is a neat effect that’s useful for navigating larger images. Jump straight to the demo to see it in action – it’s the sort of thing that’s going to work really well in specific situations, and not at all in others. Tags: jQuery, JavaScript, Web Development

PrettyCheckboxes makes checkboxes and radio buttons pretty! Yes, really! Surprise! I’ve played around trying to do something similar with a previous script, and have to say that the prettyCheckboxes solution looks a lot cleaner (although it still feels like a bad idea, and something you should only do if you really have to imho).

Microjs.com contains a load of “micro” JavaScript frameworks. Useful if you’re trying to do something simple and need a lightweight solution rather than a full framework. It’s quite surprising how many of these there are. Tags: JavaScript

Understanding JavaScript’s delete

Understanding delete is a guide containing everything you could ever need to know about the ‘delete’ operator in JavaScript. It’s a long read, but odds are if you’re needing to use delete in your JavaScript then it’s probably important that you use it correctly. Tags: JavaScript

Some quick jQuery/JavaScript– Domsearch and Betterflow

Domsearch is a jQuery plugin that allows you to search within an element (such as a table or a list), narrowing down the inner elements using LiquidMetal. Apparently LiquidMetal “is way better than whatever else you could come up with”. Betterflow.js is a JavaScript coverflow implementation – yes, there have been a few. Betterflow looks pretty neat.

IE6 update

IE6 Update is a simple if somewhat devious piece of jQuery code, which provides IE6 users with a Windows styled message which attempts to get them to update IE6 to something usable. Possibly a valiant effort, possibly unethical. Tags: jQuery, JavaScript

FancyUpload is a widget based on Swf and Ajax (custom, with mootools dependancies). It looks pretty slick. I've got a project in the works which might benefit from it greatly, so I'll find out soon how easy it is to integrate into an ASP.NET application (samples on the website are all for php, but it has no serverside dependancies).
