Lazy Loading Google Maps jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: Maps

For Osvaldas Valutis’s latest responsive freelance project there was a contact page where he had to display several Google Maps instances on a single page. You can see where he is heading to: what if a user is not going to scroll down the page because the very first map is what a user was looking for? What if the user is accessing the page on a smartphone under the cellular internet connection?

The right way is to lazy-load the script file and map instances one by one. On every scroll and browser resize interval the Lazy-loading Google Maps Plugin checks whether there are any maps in the viewport to be displayed. If yes, it loads (if it wasn’t loaded before) Google Maps API script file and then initiates the corresponding map instances. Finally, there’s a callback function which is called within every map instance initiation so that you can continue doing whatever you need with your maps.

Charted – A Tool for Automatically Visualizing Data

Posted · Category: Charts, MIT License

Charted is a tool for automatically visualizing data, created by the Product Science team at Medium. Give it the link to a data file and Charted returns a beautiful, shareable chart of the data. Charted does not store any data. It only fetches and visualizes what the link provides. It also refetches the data every 30 minutes, so the chart is always up-to-date.

Charted is open-sourced and available for anyone to use at charted.co. The publicly-hosted charted.co works with files that are already publicly accessible to anyone with the link (e.g., Dropbox share links). For protected or sensitive data, you can serve your own instance of Charted on your secure network.

MetricGraphics.js – A Library for Principled Data Graphics

Posted · Category: Charts

MetricsGraphics.js is a library built on top of D3 that is optimized for visualizing and laying out time-series data. It provides a simple way to produce common types of graphics in a principled, consistent and responsive way. The library currently supports line charts, scatterplots and histograms as well as features like rug plots and basic linear regression.

The API is simple. All that’s needed to create a graphic is to specify a few default parameters and then, if desired, override one or more of the optional parameters on offer. The library is data-source agnostic. While it provides a number of convenience functions and options that allow for graphics to better handle things like missing observations, it doesn’t care where the data comes from.

Drag and Drop Interactions Ideas for Your Inspirations

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Codrops has shared some ideas for drag and drop interactions in a UI. The idea is to show a droppable area that stands for certain actions after an element is being dragged. The demos are just some experimental ideas of how these kind of interactions can be imagined.

The idea is to allow to drag an item and then show some droppable area that stands for certain actions. This saves a lot of UI space and gives an interesting dynamic to interactions. There are many applicable scenarios; think of categorizing and organizing content (i.e. like the Pinterest boards) or performing any type of actions (like in mail apps or in content management systems).

More Subtle Hover Effect Ideas for Your Inspirations

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

Codrops has updated and added some more effects to the Hover Effect Ideas. It’s a second set of styles with some fresh effects with various transitions. The structure of the demos was a fullscreen grid before, but now they have adjusted it to contain single rows of figures where it’s easier to see how an effect looks in its normal state and when hovering.

As in the previous set, they try to make the effects as smooth as possible, not using any transition on properties that affect layout or painting. But trying out new things, there could be some glitches in Firefox on Windows (tiny border of SVG shown).
