jQuery UI is one of the cooler things to come out with jQuery. It allows you to easily install widgets and simple capabilities onto your site quickly and easily. ThemeRoller makes it even more fun by allowing you to style the widgets in nearly limitless ways. There is one place where jQuery UI is lacking though: the number of widgets it provides. This is where Wijmo comes in.

jQuery plugins are popping up all over the place and just about everyone is trying to get in on the action. What determines whether a plugin is good or bad for you is largely up to your opinion and your requirements, but there are few things that you can do when writing your plugins to guarantee at least a bit of quality and standardization in your plugins that everyone who looks at your plugin code will be thankful for.
Sliders and Carousels are one of the coolest ways to display information on websites. They can contain tons of information in a smaller area, and the animation of automatic sliding and the large, beautiful images that are usually included draw the user’s attention. Well, I’ll show you how to set up an awesome carousel with jQuery and the Roundabout plugin.
If you don’t already know, JZ Publish/Subscribe is a jQuery plugin that I developed to add a simple, but powerful Pub/Sub feature to the jQuery utility functions. I’m guessing there are some people out there who don’t understand what Pub/Sub is, how to use it, or why to use it. I’m here to bring some answers and give a specific example of how JZ Publish/Subscribe can be used.
I recently started looking through Dojo because another blog writer seemed to highly recommend it while saying there’s no real need to use jQuery. Dojo seemed quite powerful, probably having DOM manipulation on par with jQuery, but only if you required the correct extra modules. Also the syntax for Dojo is far more verbose. Still it seemed like Dojo had something that jQuery didn’t, so I sought to find what jQuery was lacking. It turns out that the only thing that Dojo (excluding Dijit and it’s other separate libraries) had that jQuery didn’t was a publish/subscribe module.
