Dynamic Image Gallery

You can find a lot of Javascript Image Galleries and Slideshows which have appealing interface, however, but not all of them are lightweight. I found one Javascript Image gallery that is Michael Leigeber made it himself. This script that clocks in under 3kb packed and includes a number of cool features.


I will make a plugin/module for joomla soon.

This script isn’t completely polished yet but I wanted to go ahead and get it out there for anyone that can put it to use. It is tested working in IE6/IE7, FF, Opera and Safari. Feel free to use it in any personal or commercial projects.

Coda Style Popup Bubble Tooltips with jQuery
Tuesday, 13 May 2008 03:17
Coda is one of the new web development tools for the Mac - and it’s popular amongst designers and developers. Panic (the developers of Coda) are also known for their sharp design. Now, we can have a fancy popup bubble tooltips with jQuery. Remy Sharp from jQueryforDesigners has showed us how to re-create their ‘puff’ popup bubble shown when you mouse over the download image. In essence the effect is just a simple combination of effect.


This effect could be perfected by changing the initial reset (popup.css()) code to read from the trigger element and approximate it’s position. In the example, jQueryforDesigners has hardcoded it because he only has one on the page - but you may want to use this effect several times across your page.

Fisheye Menus Component with Flex
Tuesday, 13 May 2008 03:15

We have seen a lot of Fisheye menus, however The Fisheye component is a bit different to others. It is built with Flex which shows us how the best of what flex gives you (productivity, development process, consistent component model) with the best of what people have been doing in flash for years (rich, highly interactive, fluid, etc).

The Fisheye component is based around the concept of itemRenderer factories, just like the flex list and charting components. The goal is to use composition to separate behaviour from content, so you can reuse the basic fisheye effect across many different applications and uses. It’s available under the MIT Open Source license, so feel free to use it or modify it in your own applications. Check out the 2D Fisheye Demo, it looks really nice.
