SmartMarkUP – Universal Markup Editor and Platform

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License

SmartMarkUP is a lightweight and powerful JavaScript library that allows you to turn any textarea into a fancy markup editor. HTML, CSS, XML, Wiki syntax, BBCode or any other desired markup language can be implemented and/or adjusted to your preferences and business needs. SmartMarkUP doesn’t depend on any other JavaScript library and can be integrated with any already existing JavaScript library or code.

With single line of code you can turn any general textarea to powerful markup editor. As far as integration is unobtrusive, HTML of your application will remain unchanged. SmartMarkUP degrades gracefully for users without JavaScript without loosing functionality of your application.

SmartMarkUP is completely customizable and scriptable as well. Changing styles, implementing new markups, creating extra buttons and submenus or adding new functionality is a matter of minutes. SmartMarkUP is distributed under GPL open source licenses, so SmartMarkUP is absolutely free and you can do anything you like with it!

Niceforms v2.0 Gives Your Forms New Themes

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

We have featured Niceforms v1.0 long time ago. It is a script that will replace the most commonly used form elements with custom designed ones. And it looks very pretty as well. However, there were some limitations and minor bugs. I am always hoping for a new version.

Finally! After what seemed like an eternity, the fully revamped version of Niceforms is ready to make its debut. Pretty much everything is new, from the basic coding approach, to the number of elements it handles, to the customization options. Niceforms v2.0 fully supports all modern browsers, with the exception of IE6, in which case it degrades gracefully to the original form.

Niceforms v.20 Gives Your Forms New Themes

You can customize the look of your forms in any way you want by creating your own themes. Since Niceforms replaces the form elements with images, it’s just a matter of slicing these images up correctly and creating the CSS that holds them all together. More themes are on the way as well.

Requirements: IE7+, Firefox2+, Safari3+, Opera9+, Chrome0.3+, Mozilla1.5+, Camino1.6+

Alternate Select Multiple Form Elements

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License

Alternate Select Multiple (asmSelect) is a progressive enhancement to <select multiple> form elements. It provides a simpler alternative of with the following advantages:

  • Easier for users to understand and interact with than regular <select multiple> form elements. Users know how to interact with it sans instruction.
  • Doesn’t require user to Ctrl-Click or Shift-Click multiple elements. Instead users of your form can add or remove elements individually, without risk of losing those that have already been selected.
  • Selected elements are always visible (within the confines of your interface) while unselected elements are always hidden (within a regular <select>).
  • Unlike regular <select multiple> option elements, those on asmSelect are optionally sortable with drag and drop (this part requires jQuery UI).
  • If a user does not have javascript, then of course the regular <select multiple> form element is used instead.

Live Search with Quicksilver String Ranking Algorithm

Posted · Category: Forms, MIT License

We have seen a lot of examples of Live Search. But now, Ordered List has added a bit of a twist to it. Steve mentioned that the typical year and month layout of archives was overkill. He thought a better way to present them would be to list them all and let live search sort ‘em out. He has created Live Search with Quicksilver Style by integrating “Quicksilver string ranking algorithm” into Live Search component. “Quicksilver string ranking algorithm” will be able to recognize which items you are searching for if you just use abbreviations, so you can type entire words, or just fragments of each.

For example, sure you can search ‘sidebar creative’ to find posts titled that, now you can just type ‘sdbcv’ to get the same result. And that guy Nunemaker, but is that name a keyboardful. Why don’t we just hit a few of the important characters like ‘nnmkr’. The post of “Welcome John Nunemaker” is right there at the top. Try out the demo, you will love this immediately.
