A grabbag of plugins I’ve written over the years
This is a humble repository of jQuery plugins that I’ve written for our projects. These are usually small plugins (<75 sloc).
If you’re to use any of these, I encourage you to just drop it into your project and maintain it yourself—I can’t claim maintain these in a backward-compatible manner.
These plugins make great ‘starting points’ for whatever you’ll need. Take them and modify them (or not) as you see fit.
These things are often basic features that most sites/webapps I work on need.
|Anchorjump||Make anchor links scroll smoothly|
|Autoexpand||Makes text fields auto-size its height|
|ButtonLoading||Show ‘loading…’ text on buttons|
|Console Shim *||Makes `console.log()` silently fail if the browser doesn’t support it|
|Growl||Lightweight notification library|
|MailcheckHint||Simple one-shot integration with Kicksend Mailcheck|
|Paymentform||Simple integration with jQuery.payment|
|Scrollagent||Simple scrollspy implementation|
|Tabs||Simple tab control|
|Toggleable||Simple toggle menu helper|
|UIScreen||Blacks out things|
|Unorphan||Prevents text orphans|
Still very useful in a lot of common cases, but not as common as the ones above.
|Ajax Submit||Submits a form via AJAX instead of a page load|
|Cycler *||Cycles through a list (lightweight carousel/slideshow)|
|Ellipsify||Truncates text with ellipses|
|Ensurevisible||Scrolls a pane to reveal a given item|
|Fadeonload||Fades images in on load|
|HiDPI||Automatically uses 2x images for retina displays in images|
|NoMobileScroll||Prevent document body scrolling on iOS apps|
|Prevent Overscroll||Stop pages from scrolling when scrolling through a panel|
|Pseudoinput||Highlight the container of inputs when they’re focused|
|Scrollstick||Makes elements stick to the top when it’s outside the scroll viewport|
|Smartquotes||Translates plain ASCII punctuation into typographic punctuation|
Useful in some rarer cases.
|SizeResponder||Performs callbacks when the browser is resized to/from a given range|
|Fillsize||Makes an element fill up its container|
|Sort||Sorts DOM elements|
|Timer *||General-purpose wrapper for setTimeout|
Kinda deprecated / obsolete
I don’t find myself using these often anymore. Or, at all. But they work!
|Livenavigate||In-page navigation that doesn’t break the back button and actually changes the URL|
* = no dependency on jQuery
