Add jQuery Booklet 1.4.0 #458
This is a nice, small library that allows users to make a magazine-like widget for their content with minimal effort. I use it extensively and imagine that there are others who can use it as well. The version number (1.4.0) and other information can be found on the
npm test passes. Everything should be in order--I hope--if we want to include this in the cdn database.
It definitely gets use, but it is certainly on the specialized end. I use it a lot with my site, since we are a publisher, and we are starting to offer users more interactive previews of our books and magazines. I know of a few Universities and others that use it--there's also a nice Codrops guide for it that was popular two years ago--but I have absolutely no idea what amount of traffic it would get here, other than from my site--which isn't as high traffic as I wish it was ;) If it is too specialized for cdnjs, I totally, totally understand. I will certainly keep watching the project to see if the community changes or expands, and if it does, I'll initiate a new pull request.
My only question for future would be how specialized is too specialized for hosting on cdnjs? Is there a clear criterion I can use for measuring audience reach/quality before submitting something--or is it simply a case-by-case basis where I should just continue making pull requests like this one? (I just ask this before I suggest a lot of other libraries like http://jvectormap.com/ http://paweldecowski.github.com/jQuery-CreditCardValidator/ http://www.justgage.com/ or http://timeline.verite.co/ among others: the last thing I want to do is waste anyone's time or wear anyone out!)
@tmyoung Hi Tanner, the heuristic we generally go by right now is a minimum of 100 watchers on github.
That jQuery-CreditCardValidator project for example has 352 watchers at the time of writing.
Of course, that's just a rough heuristic. We'll definitely use our judgement on a case by case basis.
