10 Useful jQuery Lightbox Plug-ins We are certain that you are already familiar with the concept of jQuery LightBox plugins. These plugins are basically used to focus the images, video or html content in a unique way on the webpage that you are currently viewing. There are many plugins available online for you to choose from and the best part is that they are pretty snappy because not a lot of coding is involved when these plugins are designed.

crypto-js CryptoJS is a growing collection of standard and secure cryptographic algorithms implemented in JavaScript using best practices and patterns. They are fast, and they have a consistent and simple interface. If you have a problem with CryptoJS, if you want to discuss new features, or if you want to contribute to the project, you can visit the CryptoJS discussion group. CryptoJS is a project that I enjoy and work on in my spare time, but unfortunately my 9-to-5 hasn't left me with as much free time as it used to. I'd still like to continue improving it in the future, but I can't say when that will be. pdfsandwich pdfsandwich generates "sandwich" OCR pdf files, i.e. pdf files which contain only images (no text) will be processed by optical character recognition (OCR) and the text will be added to each page invisibly "behind" the images. pdfsandwich is a command line tool which is supposed to be useful to OCR scanned books or journals. It is able to recognize the page layout even for multicolumn text. Essentially, pdfsandwich is a wrapper script which calls the following binaries: unpaper (since version 0.0.9), convert, gs, hocr2pdf (for tesseract prior to version 3.03), and tesseract. It is known to run on Unix systems and has been tested on Linux and MacOS X.

How To Display Your Last Tweet Using Javascript And The Twitter API The other day I was working on a small project of mine, and it doesn’t use a content management system such as WordPress or Joomla. It’s just all html and css to style the pages. So I wanted to display my last tweet from twitter, and jazz it up using css. Now when people usually want to display their last tweet, and are running wordpress, they usually just install a plugin to do it for them.

Datejs Last updated 2008-04-14 Datejs is an open source JavaScript Date library for parsing, formatting and processing. The last 'official' release was Alpha-1 on November 19th, 2007. The project has been under active development since that time and many revisions and additions have occurred. It is highly recommended that you obtain a copy of the latest source from SVN.

How to scan and OCR like a pro with open source tools With optical character recognition (OCR), you can scan the contents of a document into a single file of editable text. This article, which focuses on scanning books, describes the steps you need to take to prepare pages for optimal OCR results, and compares various free OCR tools to determine which is the best at extracting the text. First, fire up your distribution's package manager to fetch a few packages and dependencies. In Debian, the required packages are sane, sane-utils, imagemagick, unpaper, tesseract-ocr, and tesseract-ocr-eng. You may also install other language packs for Tesseract -- for example, I installed tesseract-ocr-deu for German text. Parallel.js Parallel Computing with Javascript Parallel.js is a tiny library for multi-core processing in Javascript. It was created to take full advantage of the ever-maturing web-workers API. Javascript is fast, no doubt, but lacks the parallel computing capabilites of its peer languages due to its single-threaded computing model. In a world where the numbers of cores on a CPU are increasing faster than the speed of the cores themselves, isn't it a shame that we can't take advantage of this raw parallelism?

jStorage jStorage is a cross-browser key-value store database to store data locally in the browser - jStorage supports all major browsers, both in desktop (yes - even Internet Explorer 6) and in mobile. Additionally jStorage is library agnostic, it works well with any other JavaScript library on the same webpage, be it jQuery, Prototype, MooTools or something else. Though you still need to have either a third party library (Prototype, MooTools) or JSON2 on the page to support older IE versions.
