Useful jQuery

Collecting some useful jQuery I might be able to use:

  • Gradient background
  • Interactive stars
  • idTabs hides the content for each tab in a “div”
  • Cluetip provides tooltips with an ajax interface to fetch them dynamically or as made up from content on the page. Tips are html.
    • Columnizer dynamicaly adjusts multi columns to fit the current browser width. Not sure how I can take advantage of it but for more text base sites it sounds great. Maybe that resume plug in I’ve been contemplating
    • Checkbox for some pretty checkboxes like:
  • Lavalamp has feedback as you move from one element to the next. Might be good for tabs, etc
    • Flexigrid offers sortable, pageable, ajax tables:


  • Readable tables offers row, header, column highlighting. No demo to try it out, though
  • Timeago offers dynamically updated timestamps in a human readable format. Eg. “You opened this page 3 minutes ago.”
