7 Handy jQuery Plug-ins
4th September 2009
Web Form Validation
This plug-in is one that I will be using quite often. It takes the hassle out of coding a validation script for your web forms and works with 1 simple line of code. You can easily set which fields are required and what type of field it is in the form via simple meta data in the tag. You can also easily change the look of the error messages via css.
Farbtastic Color Picker
More then just looks, this color picker is so easy to install you feel like you’re cheating! Works brilliantly and puts the hex straight into any input field ready for you to use in your web app.
This plugin makes adding flash a little bit simpler and can easily handle your version checking for you.
Simple Page Peel
You’ve seen it everywhere, the ugly flash thing in the corner where you rollover it and it peels the page back to reveal some crazy offer. Well here is a jQuery implementation for it but unlike it’s flash brothers its not ugly!
Speaks for itself, you can easily switch between CSS stylesheets.
Want cross browser curves without the hassle of corner images? This is for you. Not as smooth as the CSS3 code but it’ll work across all modern browsers.
