How to Create a Bubbly Navigation with jQuery

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Codrops has shared a tutorial about how to create a bubbly navigation with jQuery. The idea is to have some round navigation icons that release a bubble when hovering over them. They will use the jQuery Easing Plugin for a even nicer effect.

However, if you are an IE user you might have noticed that the bubble looks kind of weird without CSS3 support. He has figured that has something to do with the transparency of the image and the animation, but there is no solution yet. Please use Google Chrome to view the demo for now.

Open Graph Protocol Integrates Webpages into Social Graph

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

The Open Graph protocol enables you to integrate your web pages into the social graph. It is currently designed for web pages representing profiles of real-world things — things like movies, sports teams, celebrities, and restaurants.

Once your pages become objects in the graph, users can establish connections to your pages as they do with Facebook Pages. Based on the structured data you provide via the Open Graph protocol, your pages show up richly across Facebook: in user profiles, within search results and in News Feed.

Micro Image Gallery jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

In many blogs and news sites images are mostly included as an addition to the content. Space is often limited and therefore it would be a good idea to integrate a miniature image gallery that does not occupy a lot of space.

Micro Image Gallery jQuery plugin transforms a set of images into a tiny gallery with several options. It allows to switch between a grid view which shows a preview of the images as thumbnails and a single view showing one image only. The navigation bar can be hidden and sliding out when hovering over the gallery, or visible. A total of nine thumbnails are shown in the grid preview. The plugin will automatically resize the image according to the chosen gallery size.

Pusher Allows Your Users to Collaborate in Realtime

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

Pusher is a realtime service that complements your existing server architecture, which allows your users to collaborate in realtime. It Adds live status updates and messages. And it lets you broadcast events to everyone viewing a page.

When there is an activity that you want several users to know about, your server makes a simple REST call to the Pusher API passing a JSON payload of data. This message is modelled on Javascript event triggering. The event is relayed to the relevant browsers on the specified channel. Javascript code bound to the specified event informs the connected users of the activity.

However, they are currently limiting signups to Pusher. This is so that they can monitor usage of the system and make some tweaks without breaking things for everyone.

How to Create a Realistic Looking Button with CSS3

Posted · Category: Buttons, License Free

How to Create a Realistic Looking Button with CSS3? The whole idea is to use a combination of subtle effects to create a three dimensional object. The idea is that: The button is set into the canvas. The texture of the button is different from the canvas and the surface is slightly raised. And the text of the button is pressed into it.

By going into the detail you can use these techniques in your designs. Think about your designs in 3D. It is less about using the specific border effects and more about using them together to achieve an overall look.

Piecemaker – 3D Image Slider Uses Tweener Engine

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

We were all amazed by CU3ER which is a 3D Transitions Image Slider in Flash. We were particularly fascinated by the effect of slicing an image up to pieces, turning the elements and recreating a new image from it.

From that day on, Björn Crüger was thinking about creating a gallery concentrating on such an effect and playing with it. With just a few variables this effect becomes extremely versatile. The Piecemaker uses the mighty Tweener engine from Caurina, which makes it support plenty of tween types for the transitions, such as Cubic, Bounce or Elastic.

Beside the transition type you can also customize tweening time, tweening delay as well as the movement of the cubes while tweening in terms of position on the z axis and positions to each other. With Piecemaker you can make the cubes move towards the screen or away from it and let the whole gallery expand while tweening. This provides you with a lot of possibilities customize the gallery.
