User experience with jQuery

28 febbraio 2011

I think jQuery is a powerful Javascript library that allows the development of web applications with a better user experience. Here are some plug-ins I discovered and used in the last two months.

Starting learning  jQuery:

About plug-ins:

  • Any+Time™ DatePicker/TimePicker AJAX Calendar Widget – The Any+Time™ JavaScript Library includes a highly-customizable, jQuery-compatible datepicker/ timepicker (calendar/ clock widget) and a powerful Date/String parse/format utility.
  • jQuery UI Datepicker – The jQuery UI Datepicker is a highly configurable plugin that adds datepicker functionality to your pages. You can customize the date format and language, restrict the selectable date ranges and add in buttons and other navigation options easily.
  • jCarousel – 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).
  • jCarousel Lite – jCarousel Lite is a jQuery plugin that carries you on a carousel ride filled with images and HTML content. Put simply, you can navigate images and/or HTML in a carousel-style widget. It is super light weight, at about 2 KB in size, yet very flexible and customizable to fit most of our needs.
  • CLEditor – it is an open source jQuery plugin which provides a lightweight, full featured, cross browser, extensible, WYSIWYG HTML editor that can be easily added into any web site.
  • SimpleModal – it’s a lightweight jQuery Plugin which provides a powerful interface for modal dialog development. Think of it as a modal dialog framework. SimpleModal gives you the flexibility to build whatever you can envision, while shielding you from related cross-browser issues inherent with UI development.
  • UI Elements: Search Box with Filter and Large Drop Down Menu – Today we will show you some more UI elements: a search box with a filter and a large drop down menu. We will use jQuery in both elements for the effect. We will also use plenty of CSS3 properties to create some slick looking details.
  • Event Calendar for an ASP.NET MVC Application – This tutorial explains the steps required to integrate a Google-like interactive event calendar in an ASP.NET MVC application. We will use dhtmlxScheduler, an Open-Source JavaScript calendar that provides an event scheduling interface with drag-and-drop capabilities and AJAX support. Events can be displayed in Day/Week/Month/Year views and edited by the end-user on the client side.
  • Integrating jQuery DataTables plugin into ASP.NET MVC applications – JQuery DataTables plugin is an excellent client-side component that can be used to create rich-functional tables in the web browser. This plugin adds lot of functionalities to the plain HTML tables that are placed in web pages such as filtering, paging, sorting, changing page length etc. By default it works with client side rows that are rendered in table (in <tbody> </tbody> section in the HTML code of the table) but it might be configured to use data from the server via Ajax calls. However, to integrate DataTables with server-side code developer must know protocols and parameters that are sent by DataTables and how to use them on server side. This article shows how JQuery DataTables plugin can be integrated into ASP.NET MVC application. It contains step by step examples that show how DataTables plugin interacts with server-side components.
  • Facebox Image and Content Viewer – Facebox is a lightweight Facebook-style Lightbox that can display images, divs, and even entirely remote pages (via AJAX) inline on a page and on demand. It uses the compact jQuery library as its engine, unlike Lightbox v2.0, which uses Prototype.
  • jqGrid – jqGrid is a grid component for ASP.NET & PHP. It supports for all major databases (MS SQL, MySql, Postgre).
