Pure HTML Clocks using Javascript & CSS Rotation

Posted · Category: Calendar, License Free

The two Clocks are pure HTML using JavaScript and CSS rotation. There are no Adobe Flash files or <canvas> going on, just regular <div> and <img> tags. The way it works is by taking those images in an { overflow: hidden } <div> and rotating them, via JavaScript, using the proposed CSS transform property.

However, this isn’t going to work in any currently available version of Internet Explorer or many older browsers. It only works in Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox 3.5+ browsers support the CSS transform property.


Requirements: Browsers support CSS transform property

YoxView – A Free jQuery Image Viewer Plugin

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

YoxView is a free image viewer for websites. It’s written in javascript using jQuery and is available as a jQuery plugin. YoxView is inspired by Lokesh Dhakar’s Lightbox. Like it, YoxView displays images above the website’s content, as a separate layer.

Users always see the whole image, even on small screen resolutions or resized windows. Images smaller than the browser’s window are displayed at their original size, larger images are resized to fit. Images are loaded in the background, to improve the viewer’s performance and shorten wait times for users. Forward caching continues while viewing images.
