Five Ways to Spice Up Your Site with jQuery

May 23rd, 2009 No comments


Javascript frameworks aren’t just a path to AJAX without understanding XMLHttpRequest – mature libraries like jQuery are being across the board to improve usability, enhance accessibility and open doors to features you never thought were possible. With its inclusion in the ASP.NET platform, jQuery is now an accepted standard in all web development. In this tutorial, I’ll show you five quick tips for spicing up your site, often without a single change to your existing code.

To follow this tutorial, you’ll need some basic experience with jQuery. I suggest you read through my previous tutorial, Getting Started with AJAX in jQuery. An understanding of the DOM wouldn’t hurt, either. Otherwise, this tutorial requires little else than an existing web page or two using jQuery (download it and include it in your <head>), that could use some web development steroids.

Tutorial Pages:

» Tip 1: Image-less Rounded Corners in jQuery
» Tip 2: Striping Existing Tables
» Tip 3: Building a simple collapsing menu
» Tip 4: Classy full-size views for thumbnails with lightboxes
» Tip 5: CrossSlide – pan and cross-fade animations
