Create Beautiful Circular Switches with jQuery Knob

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License, MIT License

jQuery Knob is powerful jQuery plugin that helps users to create beautiful circular switches like volume controls. It works by transforming any given input fields according to the values defined in its attributes and can be drag-and-dropped to change the value.

It also facilitates users to define the min-max values, default value on initial load, color and put it into read only mode. It supports touch, mousewheel and keyboard events. It is released under GPL and MIT license.

Fast Multidimensional Filtering for Coordinated Views

Posted · Category: Charts

Crossfilter is a JavaScript library for exploring large multivariate datasets in the browser. Crossfilter supports extremely fast (<30ms) interaction with coordinated views, even with datasets containing a million or more records; it was built to power analytics for Square Register, allowing merchants to slice and dice their payment history fluidly.

Since most interactions only involve a single dimension, and then only small adjustments are made to the filter values, incremental filtering and reducing is significantly faster than starting from scratch. Crossfilter uses sorted indexes (and a few bit-twiddling hacks) to make this possible, dramatically increasing the perfor­mance of live histograms and top-K lists.

Automatically Adds Filler Content to HTML Documents

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

Fixie.js is an open source tool that automatically adds filler content to HTML documents. When designing and developing websites, it’s often useful to add lorem ipsum text to see what your page will look like without worrying about your final content. Unfortunately, adding lots of filler content involves lots of copy-pasting and manual editing, and also makes your HTML unwieldy.

Fixie.js makes filler content succinct, making it faster and easier to test out your designs. By interpreting your semantic HTML5 tags, Fixie will automagically add the right type of content in the right places. Headings, paragraphs, links, images, sections.

WebAppers Redesign Updates #1

Posted · Category: Announcement

First of all, thank you very much for all of your opinions and suggestions about the redesign. You guys have pointed out some of the most important things I missed when designing. Most of them are very useful and helped me improved the new design dramatically.


Sticky Navigation Menu No Longer Sticky

I have now set the navigation menu on the left hand side to be fixed position. A little Up Arrow button will be appeared when you scroll, so that you can quickly go to the top of the page if needed.

#05-12-2012 Update
The Navigation Menu is now sticky again, but used simple CSS: Fixed Postion instead. So it still follows your scroll but in a smooth way.

Content Area is Bigger than Ever

The content area is bigger for larger screens now. I have set the font size bigger, so it makes the content area more stand out. I have also made the sidebar background a bit darker, so that it won’t distract you from reading the content.

Better Contrast

The color of headings and titles are changed. It makes better contrast for them with the text of the content. And it’s more comfortable reading the text now. The links are now more obvious and visible too.

CSS Image Sprites

This should be the biggest mistake I have made. Preloading images for mouseover images on navigation menu did not work very well apparently. I have used CSS Image Sprites for mouseover images for navigation menu and most popular section now.

Still Responsive

It’s still a responsive design. You can always test it out in browser with different resolutions: 1280px, 1024px, 800px, 600px and 320px.

There are other bits and pieces I have made changes. Added the small indication for sub menus and etc.
