Awesome JQuery time picker. Experimental code ! This is my humble attempt to enhence web time picking. For the moment I'd call it a toy project, it might stay in experimental state evitam eternam.. I just wanted to see if I could create a better time picker. I've seen lots of time pickers styles and approaches, but none seems to focus on user experience accross many platforms and beautiful degradation.
So I've determined a set of goals to achieve a better time picker. Goals Unobtrusive Graceful degradation Using maximum 2 clicks Intuitive keyboard navigation Be touch friendly (think iphone, tablet pc, etc..) Demo 12345678910111200153045ampm Basic usage Options Tested browsers Mozilla Firefox 2 (Windows) Mozilla Firefox 3.0.3 (Linux) Mozilla Firefox 3.0.3 (Windows) Epiphany Web Browser 2.22.2 (Linux) Safari 3.1.2 (Windows) Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 Todo.
In this post we’ll take a good look at jQuery’s selectors and how to use them efficiently. I’ll also talk briefly about DOM manipulation and event handlers. Part 1: Search At its core jQuery is exactly what its name implies, a query engine designed for search. And just like you’re careful to construct efficient SQL queries, you need to take the same care with your jQuery selectors.
Ego and #ID You’re right, it’s never that clear cut Good browsers actually provide a getElementsByClass which greatly improves the performance of class selectors. Pseudo selectors provide a lot of power in the right situations but they’re also a lot slower. See? Narrowing the search Good semantics, good selectors Luckily this isn’t hard to do.
