Greyscale Hover Effect with CSS & jQuery

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

A few months ago, James Padolsey introduced a cool greyscale technique for non-IE browsers. His technique inspired SohTanaka to come up with a workaround with a similar effect.

Greyscale Hover Effect with CSS & jQuery relies on CSS Sprites and a few lines of jQuery, but requires a bit of preparation before it can be implemented. It is not recommended for large scale projects and probably best for displaying portfolio pieces.

Keep Demos Inside the Page with inFrame

Posted · Category: License Free, Popup

Say I had some CSS or JavaScript techniques/effects I wanted to show in a blog post. Obviously it would have been uncomfortable for us to actually include the thing in the post (CSS needs to be in the head, JavaScript may conflict with other JavaScript, etc), so the best option would have been to just link to the file demonstrating the effect.

Using inFrame, we can keep demos indisde the page. So that, the reader doesn’t have to go away from the blog post to view demo files. Simply just add a class of inframe to each these links.
