One of the greatest things about jQuery is the ever-expanding userbase. In the past it was common for libraries to have a small following, with only a handful of plugins and widgets made by advocates of the library. Now it seems everyone has their own jQuery plugin. You only have to look on Github to see many programmers have thrown their two-cents into the jQuery community. It seems you have the dabblers who make small plugins to test their skill, and (usually) end-up creating something truely awesome, and the aficionados who only do jQuery stuff (and only very rarely throw out good code, though some do).

Over the past three or so years I have been assimilating and trying to make sense of the sheer volume of these plugins, and over the course of my constant checking of del.icio.us, and various other javascript related sites, I came up with a jQuery project of my own. I couldn't help it, I had to respond to this phenomenon. You see, I collect jQuery plugins that I find interesting, and if time permits, use them extensively in my projects. It turns out, I only like good jQuery plugins, that is, plugins which bring something new to the table, or offer a unique way of interacting with a website that hasn't been done before.

Sadly, some plugin authors don't get the exposure they deserve for their work, as usually references to a particular plugin are drowned by the noise of the dreaded 'link list' / 'roundup' type post. Hands up how many people discovered a plugin they really liked by wading through a huge list on some blog? (Puts hands up). If the web-as-app needs better discover-ability techniques, then surely we must get rid of bloated content farms serving up the 'coolest jquery plugins of 2011' type posts, and actually create something a bit more human and above all, of high quality.

This is a 'handpicked' repository of jQuery scripts, so don't be offended when you see a script you don't like. If you're annoyed certain plugins didn't make the list, create your own repo! I've even made the entire site's source code available so you can do just that.
