jQuery plugins

Some of my recent favorite plugins.

I recently finished a course by Microsoft: Introduction to jQuery. I’m glad I can at least better understand the little snippets of jQuery code I copy and paste from the Web. At the same time, reinventing the wheel is often unnecessary. That’s why I still love simple, well-written plugins (jQuery or otherwise).

Some unique ones I’ve found:

  • Intelligist – makes it easy to share and demo code in-page, using GitHub gists
  • Backstretch – allows you to add a dynamically-resized, slideshow-capable background image to any page or element
  • Approach – allows you to animate CSS properties based on distance to an object
