jQuery Plugin/Widget. Timeglider JS is a zooming, panning data-driven timeline widget written in Javascript.

jQuery Plugin/Widget

This widget is the core of our our timeline authoring and publishing app, and can be integrated into any HTML application environment. Timelines can be zoomed by dragging the vertical slider at right: up for zooming in (less time shown) and down for zooming out (more time shown). The mousewheel also works as a zoom controller. Any white area on the "stage" of the timeline can be dragged left and right, as can the blue "ruler" which marks out different units of time.

Clicking on an event brings up a small modal window with a description and links if any are provided in the data. A few bullets: Timeglider works well on iPads, but is not yet optimized for Android devices. Essential JavaScript And jQuery Design Patterns – A Free New Book. Hey guys.

Essential JavaScript And jQuery Design Patterns – A Free New Book

Today I'm happy to announce the release of a free book I've written called 'Essential JavaScript & jQuery Design Patterns For Beginners'. Design patterns are reusable solutions to commonly occurring problems in software development and are a very useful tool to have at your disposal. I wanted to write this mini-book was because I felt that patterns were an area a lot of new and intermediate JavaScript developers may not have had a chance to explore just yet and I'm hopeful my book will encourage you to check them out as they can be quite powerful. Update: Version 1.5.x of the book and above are available in either online form to read for free or via O'Reilly if you'd like to pick up physical or eBook formats of the book.

The latter is a lot more visually pleasing than the PDF/eBooks I used to generate and I hope this combination of free or purchase options satisfies most readers needs. You can download my book and learning resources right away or read online if you'd prefer. jQuery Plugin/Widget.
