BlueTripCSS – Combination of Popular CSS Frameworks

Posted · Category: Framework, GPL License, MIT License

CSS Frameworks have been a hot topic the past few months. Although they’ve been getting a lot of heat from semantic freaks and minimalists (for adding unnecessary code), I think they’re a step forward. Web design is about doing things quickly and beautifully. No matter how you feel about frameworks, it’s undeniable that they speed up the design process.

We have seen some of the popular CSS Framework like, 960.gs, Blueprint, YAML. Capsize Designs decided to combine the good points of each of them to get something that I was satisfied with. He has pretty much taken the entire grid from Blueprint (with a bunch of his own changes) and the entire typography from Tripoli (with a bunch more of his changes). Since most of it came from BlueprintCSS or Tripoli, This CSS Framework is called BlueTrip. The end result ended up really nice.

Seek Attention jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: Demo Tour, GPL License, MIT License

The “seekAttention” plugin gracefully get’s your users attention by fading out a definable area but leaving the target element (the element which is seeking attention) un-faded and thereby focusing the users attention on it.

The definable area (to be called “container” from this point forward) can be the entire page or any element which surrounds the target element and the colour which overlays the container can also be defined by you. Not only will it focus the element but it will automatically scroll the page if the element is out of the users view. It works very well in Firefox 2 or 3, Google Chrome and Safari (on Windows). It works quite well on IE7 and Opera as well.

jQuery for Menu Background Image Animations

Posted · Category: GPL License, Menu, MIT License

Snook read Dave Shea’s article on CSS Sprites using jQuery to produce animation effects, he felt like playing around with things to see what could be done but accomplish it with a simpler HTML structure (no need for adding superfluous tags) and simpler code, too.

Changing the position of the background image felt to be the best approach to creating the type of effect we’re looking for. Snook has shown us Background-Position plugin and published an article “Using jQuery for Background Image Animations” about how to use it. The script to put this altogether is really straightforward. The animation needs to run when the user moves their mouse over and out of the navigation. The key thing to note is that any animation is stopped before attempting to animate again. This avoids animations queuing up from repeatedly moving the mouse in and out of the element.
