CSS Mega Dropdown – CodyHouse [↗]

A responsive and easy to customise mega-dropdown component.

This is a couple of years old, but I came across it whilst searching for inspiration. Anyhow, it looks pretty good to me and I thought it was worth a bookmark.

jQuery.mmenu, app look-alike menus with sliding submenus [↗]

Looking for that true native app look and feel for your mobile menu? Stop searching, you found it!

No matter how large your nested menu structure is, everyone already is familiar with the sliding submenus used in native apps. Adding a fixed header, search field and subitem counters make navigating your menu even easier.

Looks like a solid app menu implementation. Also available as a WordPress plugin.

smoothState.js [↗]

smoothState.js is a jQuery plugin that progressively enhances page loads to give us control over page transitions. If the user’s browser doesn’t have the required features, smoothState.js fades into the background and never runs.

I’ve often looked at the pushState() method, but I’ve always shied away from using it as it seemed fiddly and prone to breaking. This jQuery plugin looks pretty good though, so I might actually give it a try.

noty – a jQuery Notification Plugin [↗]

NOTY is a jQuery plugin that makes it easy to create alert – success – error – warning – information – confirmation messages as an alternative the standard alert dialog.

Honestly, creating notifications with JavaScript really isn’t very difficult. That said, this is still a nice looking jQuery plugin and it should make the process even easier.

datedropper [↗]

datedropper is an alternative to jQuery UI datepicker. Manage date input fields in a standard form. Focus on the input to open an small interactive calendar.

I was initially put off by the garish design, but after playing with this date picker, I realised that I actually quite like it.  Also, see timedropper.

Typed.js [↗]

Typed.js is a jQuery plugin that types. Enter in any string, and watch it type at the speed you’ve set, backspace what it’s typed, and begin a new sentence for however many strings you’ve set.

It’s a cheap effect, but I like it.

What’s New in jQuery 3 [↗]

In a few weeks, jQuery will reach an important milestone with the release of version 3. jQuery 3 fixes a lot of bugs, adds new methods, deprecates and removes some functions, and changes the behavior of a few functions. In this article, I’m going to highlight the most important changes introduced by jQuery 3.

A nice walk-through of what’s new and what’s changed.

jQuery Snowfall [↗]

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

A jQuery script for dressing a webpage in snow. See the demo. I guess you either love these types of scripts, or hate them. I used to hate them, but I think I must be mellowing as I’m ageing, because I’ve just used this script on the Lincoln LUG website.

jQuery FocusPoint [↗]

jQuery plugin for ‘responsive cropping’. Dynamically crop images to fill available space without cutting out the image’s subject. Great for full-screen images.

Warrants a play.
