Anystretch is a jQuery plugin that allows you to add a dynamically-resized background image to any page or block level element. The image will stretch to fit the page/element, and will automatically resize as the window size changes.
Handy when having a fluid layout/responsive design.
Zoomooz is an easy-to-use jQuery plugin for making any web page element zoom.
jQuery plugin that basically does the same as the aforementioned zoom.js. One thing that’s missing though is a shortcut (most likely something like the ESC key) to zoom out again, but that can easily be implemented 😉
You might have noticed the absence of posts here on bram.us the past week. Culprit were the new lesson materials I have developed for the course Rich Internet Applications (next year to be renamed to Web & Mobile Development)
The developed materials consist of a set of interactive in-browser slide decks, powered by (a customized) Reveal.js and are freely available on GitHub. If you happend to find a bug or have a suggestion, feel free to fork off and send a pull request.
For now, only two slide decks are included in the materials. New slide decks will be added whilst the semester progresses.
jQuery.suggest is a simple inline autosuggest jQuery plugin. It takes an array of terms as haystack and suggests the user the first item that matches what has been typed to this point. The suggestion is updated with every keystroke. Tab or Enter will accept the suggestion and update the input field accordingly.
Here is a simple application I built using jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap. Even though the application is simple, it covers some common requirements of mobile applications: database access through JSON services, multi-level master-detail views, parameter passing between views, etc.
