jQuery plugins that I use on my project

1:59 PM Posted by viperfx07 No comments
To make life easier, I use some jQuery plugins to do my project website.
Note: I recommend that if you use jQuery as your Javascript library, don't use other Javascript libraries like prototype and scriptaculous. It may burden the users to load the scripts eventhough they have fast connection. Just stick with one Javascript library.
Find the alternative plugins that use your Javascript library.

For example: Lightbox 2 use prototype and scriptaculous as its main framework. If you use jQuery, you can use jQuery.lightbox.

There are 2 plugins that I wanna discuss:

1. FancyBox
A tool for displaying images, html content and multi-media in a Mac-style "lightbox" that floats overtop of web page. It was built using the jQuery library. Licensed under both MIT and GPL licenses. You can find the example on

It is a very good plugin and very easy to use when you want to make a picture gallery with decent animation. In my opinion, it's better than jQuery lightbox, because it can display html content and multimedia, not limited to image.

2. jShowOff
jShowOff is a jQuery plugin for creating a rotating content module. Basically, it's a great tool for making a slideshow of your pictures. It has nice effects and easy to implement.

Happy coding...
