Plugins and complementary projects
The following projects have implemented – or can be used with – sqwidget.
Status: Stable. Used in production.
A jQuery plugin for the creation and manipulation of iframe elements, without the need to load external documents into the iframe. This allows iframe documents and their contents to be manipulated in a similar manner to jQuery’s methods for DOM manipulation.
Status: Stable. Used in production on the MiShorts widget
CleanSlate sandboxes a widget from CSS in the host page, via the use of a reset stylesheet comprised solely of
!important rules. This resets all CSS properties, for all HTML elements, back to sensible defaults.
Status: Beta. Would benefit from improvement in convenience for IE6 and IE7. Modified from the
!important-based stylesheet used in the BBC World Service widget.
Combined with CleanSlate, this allows CSS manipulation that is sandboxed from styling in the host document.
Status: Stable. Methods for converting external stylesheets are still to come.
A low-level “lightbox” plugin, for the display of UI components, overlaid on top of the host web page.
Status: Stable. Used in production on the MiShorts widget. Further refinements being worked on.
