A New jQuery UI Theme: Aristo

Posted · Category: License Free

For those that arn’t familiar with jQuery UI, it’s essentially a collection of jQuery plugins that try to do for user interaction what jQuery did for JavaScript. Like it’s parent library, jQuery UI does its very best to remain cross browser compliant. It is easy to implement. It is very easy to theme.

Ace and Aristo are the respective open source themes of SproutCore and Cappuccino, applied to their parent JavaScript libraries. Tait Brown has ported the “Aristo” theme for Cappuccino over to jQuery UI.

It’s a proof-of-concept to illustrate how jQuery UI could progress if they get sacrifice some of their direction and get some nifty designers on board. Imagine the possibilities if jQuery UI got Cocoia or Sofa on board!

CSS Modal Box without Javascript or Images

Posted · Category: License Free, Popup

Using CSS3 tech­niques a modal box can be cre­ated with­out JavaScript or images. With a bit of ani­ma­tion, tran­si­tion and trans­form, it can be made that lit­tle bit more special. Here we have CSS Modal by Paul Hayes.

The modal animation is hardware accelerated on Safari and iOS, which gives notable performance improvements. The animations are available in Chrome but will feel more sluggish. Firefox will see the opacity transition but not the bounce or minimise animation as it doesn’t yet support @keyframe.

However, it won’t work in IE8 and below, there’s no pointer-event sup­port and opac­ity is poorly imple­mented. IE9 sup­ports :tar­get but no pointer-events. Some IE spe­cific styles could eas­ily switch the opac­ity tog­gle to a dis­play or vis­i­bil­ity one.

How to Create a Slick Animated Content Menu with jQuery

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Codrops will create a slick Animated Content Menu with jQuery for a restaurant theme. The menu items will be animated and when clicked, a content area with more information will appear. Also, he background image is going to change according to which menu item was clicked.

The main idea is to have a restaurant menu with the different menu categories displayed. Each content are will have some foods/drinks listed. Once a content box is shown, the menu items are going to disappear. If we click on the close button to close the box, the menu items will be shown again.

jStat – A JavaScript Statistical Library Based on Flot

Posted · Category: Charts, MIT License

jStat is a statistical library written in JavaScript that allows you to perform advanced statistical operations without the need of a dedicated statistical language (i.e. MATLAB or R). The majority of jStat functions can be used independently of any other libraries. However, the plotting functionality of jStat is based on the jQuery plugin – flot.

jStat only uses elements that adhere to the jQuery UI ThemeRoller styles so any jQuery UI theme can be used. jStat was designed with simplicity in mind. Using an object-oriented design provides a clean API that can produce results in a few lines of code. jStat should work in all major browsers.
