Cloud Zoom: Image Zoom jQuery Plugin with More Features

Posted · Category: MIT License, Tooltips

Cloud Zoom is a jQuery plugin comparable to commercial image zoom products such as Magic Zoom. Compared to the popular jQZoom plugin, Cloud Zoom is smaller, has more features and more robust compatability across browsers. It has been tested on IE6+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari.

You can add a tint of any colour to the small image. The intensity of tint is fully customisable. Zoom position can be inside the smaller image, useful if you would rather not obscure any other content. You can also apply a subtle soft-focus effect to the small image. Best of all, Cloud Zoom is completely free.

Create Microsoft Office Minibar with jQuery and CSS3

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Although many will argue that Microsoft products are an example of a good design, Minibar was one of design refreshments that came out with the Office 2007. It is a variation of a toolbar that exposes context-related functionality. In case of MS Word, context is a text selection. Since Minibar always pops up near the mouse pointer it enables users to quickly perform actions related to a selection.

So how it works? When user makes a selection in input field Minibar pops up, semi-transparent, above the selection. When user hovers the Minibar it fades out. It disappears when user clicks anywhere in the input field or performs an action by clicking on a Minibar button. How to create Microsoft Office Minibar with jQuery and CSS3 will be shown in this tutorial – it has only bold, underline, italic, and link buttons.

Javascript Annotation Plugin Adds & Saves Image Annotations

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

ZURB has released the latest application called Verify, which allows you to collect user feedback through interactive tools. A lot of these tools require the user to annotate an image so they came up with a single plugin they could use for the entire app.

JavaScript Annotation Plugin makes it dead simple to add and save image annotations. Here’s how it works: The first parameter to annotatableImage is a function implemented by you and defines the element that will be added when you click. In the example below that function is called blackNote. Simple right?

Dynamic, Sliding Content Using Vertical Navigation Bar

Posted · Category: BSD License, GPL License, Menu, MIT License

SliderNav is a JQuery plugin that lets you add dynamic, sliding content using a vertical navigation bar (index). It is made mainly for alphabetical listings but can be used with anything, though longer words can look a bit awkward.

SliderNav automatically adds the navigation and sets the height for the object based on how tall the navigation is, in order to make sure users have access to the entire list. We used overflow: auto; property for the actual content so you can use your mousewheel to scroll through the content as well. It has been tested (and works fine) on Firefox 3, Chrome 5, IE7, Safari 4 and Opera 10.

How to Create a jQuery Bookmarklet Easily

Posted · Category: CC License, Information

I think most of us have written at least one jQuery Plugin / Script. In this post, Latent Motion would like to show us how to get the most out of that script by also releasing it as a jQuery Bookmarklet. You will find two examples of utilities that are ripe for bookmarkleting, as well as a prepared jQuery Bookmarklet file that you can easily modify for the purpose.

Within the article: How to Create a jQuery Bookmarklet. You will find a jQuery Bookmarklet template provided for us. What it does is:

1. Test if jQuery already exists, attempts to load it, and then tests if it’s loaded 5 times every second, waiting to call the jqReady function.
2. Use a similar process with the array JS, attempting to load jQuery dependent scripts (such as jQuery plugins). Once done, it will call jqCustom.
3. In jqCustom, if uncommented, it will load myCSS, and then run any jQuery code you’ve added.

How to Create a Stunning Full Page Photo Wall Gallery

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

Codrops has shared a tutorial of how to create Sliding Panel Photo Wall Gallery with jQuery. The idea is to have a whole page full of thumbs with a nice light effect when we hover. When an image is clicked, a panel slides up from the bottom revealing the full picture. When clicking on the full image, the thumbs panel slide back from the bottom. This effect will give the impression that we are stacking the panels on top of each other every time we change the mode.

In the full picture view we add some nice transition effect when we browse through the photos. In addition, we will use a function for resizing the full image, adapting it to the size of the screen. So, when the screen get’s resized, our image will adapt automatically.

Lightweight jQuery UI Notify Widget in 100% CSS

Posted · Category: GPL License, MIT License, Popup

This is called jQuery UI Notify Widget, that is similar to the Growl-like scripts we mentioned in the past, except most seem to come with an enormous footprint: 10-12k of code, X-number of images, and roughly 1000 options to support every plausible use case.

jQuery UI Notify Widget is built off the jQuery UI widget factory in approx. 100 lines of code and 100% CSS. In typical widget fashion, this implementation supports the most basic uses, but is flexible enough for more advanced cases.

BirdEye – Declarative Visual Analytics Library

Posted · Category: Charts, MIT License

BirdEye is the Declarative Visual Analytics Library. It is a community project to advance the design and development of a comprehensive open source information visualization and visual analytics library for Adobe Flex. The actionscript-based library enables users to create multi-dimensional data visualization interfaces for the analysis and presentation of information.

DVAL is a XML-based syntax language for specifying visual representations. The approach is based on the concepts of Leland Wilkinson’s book The Grammar of Graphics. In this book he describes a foundation for producing a comprehensive information visualization language. The advantage of the DVAL is that all visuals are created using the same structure and logic.
