Important note: Webshim is not compatible with upcoming jQuery 3.x and I do not plan to work on a new major version. I will still fix critical bugs in the future though.

Webshim

The polyfilling, capability based loading JavaScript Library

General Principles

  • HTML5 compliant: correctly and accurately implemented (HTML5) Markup-, JS- and DOM-APIs
  • capability based loading: extremely lightweight in modern browsers
  • cross-browser support: All A-Graded browsers including latest version of Opera are tested
  • extendable: if we have not implemented a feature you want, you can easily implement it on your own

Features

  • canvas
  • HTML5 form features including: constraint validation and form widgets (input[type="range"], input[type="date"], input[type="number"], input[type="time"], input[type="month"], output, progress, input[list]/datalist)
  • HTML5 audio/video/track implementation
  • matchMedia
  • interactive elements: summary/details
  • XHR2 / filereader (including, XHR2/AJAX CORS and FormData handling)
  • picture / img[srcset]
  • promise
  • geolocation
  • ECMAScript 5 / JavaScript 1.8.5 features
  • window.URL
  • getUserMedia ('usermedia' currently only access to user's camera, not microphone)
  • sticky (position: sticky)

Installation and Usage

1 - Download the Webshim Lib and put the js-webshim folder in your project.

2 - Include the JavaScript:

<script src="js/jquery.js"></script>

<script src="js-webshim/minified/polyfiller.js"></script> 

<script> 
	// load and implement all unsupported features 
	webshims.polyfill();
		
	// or only load a specific feature
	//webshims.polyfill('forms es5');
</script>

3 - Wait till everything has been loaded and then use it:

<script> 
	$(function(){
		// work with the HTML5 API
		$('input:invalid').each(function(){
		    $(this).after( $.prop(this, 'validationMessage') );
		});
		// ...
	});
</script>
