50 Fundamental jQuery Controls, Components and Plugins Every seasoned developer has one and every young and upcoming developer should be thinking of building one – a good and concise collection of UI controls, components and plugins that you can always rely on in times of need. Of course, there are plenty of great UI frameworks, kits and libraries that you could use, but none will offer you every component and none of them will be tailored to your own personal preferences and needs. Up until a few months ago my controls had been collected and sourced from various frameworks (Prototype, MooTools, jQuery…), upon review it seemed a little out-dated, some components unnecessary and some controls desperately needed updated. It seemed logical to give the collection a fresh outlook and a uniformity under one framework – I chose jQuery. (I have held on to a few controls that have not been built with jQuery, but for the sake of this post I have omitted them). So, here are my 50 Fundamental jQuery Controls and Rich UI Components… What would you add?

25 Emerging Free Web Scripts to Watch One of the unwritten rules of the script industry is that every week, new scripts are released, while others are simply abandoned and no longer maintained. Some of these newly developed scripts will at times be proclaimed as the best, with their marketing pitch reading along the lines of “Install me!” “Try me!” “Worship Me!” We know that these sales pitches are simply buzz, or rather, noise. And here at Hot Scripts, one of our missions is to separate that noise from what’s useful and to highlight the hottest scripts to web developers. Here is our list, in no particular order, of 25 Emerging Free Scripts to Watch. Open Atrium Open Atrium is an intranet that combines six modules – a blog, a wiki, a calendar, a to-do list, a shoutbox and a dashboard to manage it all.

Three jQuery-based frameworks for a rich UI | Auto-Magical After spending several months refactoring a large ASP.Net MVC application for performance, I became intimately aware of certain fundamental limitations of the server-side UI approach and began looking into pure client-side UI frameworks as an alternative. Having decided on jQuery as the foundation, I’ve narrowed down the possibilities to three candidates: jQuery UI, Kendo UI and Wijmo. Here are some of my conclusions: Why choose pure-client side? My current development approach is MVC 3 “enriched” with the Telerik Extensions for ASP.Net MVC. Presenting a new alternative to server-side MVC controls, are several client-side UI frameworks. There are three competing HTML5 UI/Ajax UI frameworks I want to mention. jQuery UI: jQuery UI provides a bunch of client-side UI widgets, “interactions” and effects. Pros: From the same team which brought you jQuery. Cons: Key components are not included with the framework, such as Grid, Template, DataSource/DataView, Validation. Telerik Kendo UI:

jQuery Countdown The countdown functionality can easily be added to a division with appropriate default settings, although you do need to set the target time. You can also remove the countdown widget if it is no longer required. Default countdown: 331Days6Hours34Minutes12Seconds The defaults are: Text is in English Format is 'dHMS' Days are shown if needed Hours/minutes/seconds are shown You can override the defaults globally as shown below: Processed fields are marked with a class of hasCountdown and are not re-processed if targetted a second time. A note on Date - the JavaScript Date constructor expects the year, month, and day as parameters. You can control how the countdown is presented via the format setting. Don't show days: 119Hours59Minutes58Seconds Don't show seconds: 5Days0Hours0Minutes Don't show either: 120Hours0Minutes Pad with zeroes: 04Days23Hours59Minutes58Seconds Compact version: 4d 23:59:58 Minimal compact version: 120:00 For targets further in the future, there are more presentation options. <?

Presenteer Introduction Presenteer.js a very flexible HTML5 presentation tool that works in one line of code, but is configurable with constructor options and many callbacks. In its simplest form, it works like And then navigate through the presentation with presentation.start();, presentation.next();, presentation.prev(); and presentation.show(0-based-index); Installation Include jQuery and Presenteer.js (and possibly Sylvester.js, see below) in your page.

85+ Cool jQuery Effects Roundup jQuery effects are used more or less all over the Internet today. Just a few years ago Flash was dominating the scene for interactive and dynamic websites.

Further the mobile movement have also helped speed up the adoption of HTML5 and as an example Canvas Animation is opening up for a lot of possibilities when it comes to developing dynamic effects in a standard way.

AmplifyJS is a set of components designed to solve common web application problems with a simplistic API. Amplify's goal is to simplify all forms of data handling by providing a unified API for various data sources. Amplify's store component handles persistent client-side storage, using standards like localStorage and sessionStorage, but falling back on non-standard implementations for older browsers. Amplify's request adds some additional features to jQuery's ajax method while abstracting away the underlying data source. by web101 May 1
