jQuery Plugins

Here is a list of the jQuery plugins I use the most.

GSAP: Professional-Grade HTML5 Animation

GSAP is a suite of tools for scripted, high-performance HTML5 animations that work in all major browsers. No other library delivers such advanced sequencing, API efficiency, and tight control. Stop wrestling with cumbersome CSS animations, stuttery jQuery.animate() calls, or a system that limits your creativity. Use animation to tell a story in a rich way rather than settling for a few fades and slides.

Sly is a JavaScript library for advanced one-directional scrolling with item based navigation support.

It can be used as a simple scrollbar replacement, as an advanced item based navigation tool, or as a great navigation and animation interface for parallax websites. This is achieved by a powerful & developer friendly API that provides a bunch of very useful methods giving you control over everything.

jQuery Image Loader Plugin

This is a JavaScript file released as a jQuery plugin that loads images in a visually appealing way. Instead of the typical block loading that HTML employs while loading images, this plugin waits until the entire image is downloaded then fades it in. This plugin simplifies the process of loading images. It is easily applied to wrappers so that it will load all of the images within it. Its main purpose is to assist web developers and designers in improving their user interfaces.

Cons: it does not use a loading image while each image is loaded.

jCarousel is a jQuery plugin for controlling a list of items in horizontal or vertical order. The items, which can be static HTML content or loaded with (or without) AJAX, can be scrolled back and forth (with or without animation).

Style-my-tooltips jQuery plugin

A simple, lightweight jQuery plugin to enhance the look of browser tooltips. Small in size (4kb unminified) script that works just like browser’s native tooltips with few options and styling via CSS.

Style-my-toolips does exactly what its title says: styles browser default tooltips. The javascript generated tooltip behaves and functions exactly like browser’s native tooltip, meaning it is always visible within the viewport and its position is relevant to cursor position. Please note that this is not a fixed positioned modal pop-up tooltip. You cannot insert html code in it (links, images etc.). The script gets elements with title attribute and generates tooltips with the attribute text.

A jQuery inline form validation, because validation is a mess

A inline validation jQuery form plugin
When it comes to form validation, it’s hard to have a versatile solution that works with every form. Figuring out how to display errors is not a simple task. This is something I tried to remedy with this script. When an error needs to be displayed, the script creates a div and positions it in the top right corner of the input. This way you don’t have to worry about your HTML form structure. The rounded corner and shadow are done with CSS3 and degrade well in non compliant browsers. There is no images needed.
