It is an animation proxy: used as a wrapper of your chosen library, it may allow you to do more and better and it makes easy to switch from one library to another any time you want. Currently it can work together with GSAP, Velocity.js, Transit (CSS transitions) or jQuery.

  1. One to rule them all
  2. Timeline support for all
  3. Support for play(), pause(), resume(), reverse() and restart()
  4. To, From and FromTo tweens, loops and infinite loops, yoyo effect, delay and loops delay, callbacks and directional callbacks, full set of events

As a big velocity fan, Tweene provides some nice unique additional options and the timeline feature pushes things to new levels ;)

URI.js is a javascript library for working with URLs. It offers a “jQuery-style” API (Fluent Interface, Method Chaining) to read and write all regular components and a number of convenience methods like .directory() and .authority().

URI.js offers simple, yet powerful ways of working with query string, has a number of URI-normalization functions and converts relative/absolute paths.”

OPTION 1

Use the CSS font loading API. Not supported in all browsers yet (MDN, W3C). You can call document.fonts  to get a FontFaceSet object.

  • check(fontSpec) – returns whether all fonts in the given font list have been loaded and are available. The fontSpec uses the CSS shorthand syntax for fonts.
    Example: document.fonts.check('bold 16px Roboto'); // true or false
  • document.fonts.ready – returns a Promise indicating that font loading and layout operations are done.

OPTION 2

Use Font Face Observer – its a small @font-face loader and monitor compatible with any web font service. It will monitor when a web font is applied to the page and notify you. It does not limit you in any way in where, when, or how you load your web fonts. Unlike the Web Font Loader Font Face Observer uses scroll events to detect font loads efficiently and with minimum overhead.

OPTION 3

Use jQuery-FontSpy.js, works by checking the change in width of a string.

OPTION 4

Use Webfont Loader,  if loading fonts from Typekit , Fonts.com, Google, Fontdeck or custom location.

This introduces the following events:

  • loading – This event is triggered when all fonts have been requested.
  • active – This event is triggered when the fonts have rendered.
  • inactive – This event is triggered when the browser does not support linked fonts or if none of the fonts could be loaded.
  • fontloading – This event is triggered once for each font that’s loaded.
  • fontactive – This event is triggered once for each font that renders.
  • fontinactive – This event is triggered if the font can’t be loaded.

BackgroundCheck automatically switches to a darker or a lighter version of an element depending on the brightness of images behind it.

Pretty amazing and useful, when doing long  one-pagers with switching section backgrounds and navigation elements hovering above them.

Unlike other i18n/l10n libraries, webL10n supports:

  • declarative localization: elements with l10n-* attributes are automatically translated when the document is loaded;
  • named variables instead of printf-like %s tokens;
  • a simple and full-featured pluralization system;
  • server-less language negotiation (think of offline webapps);

SPLIT PANES / DOCKER allow you to display multiple areas, either side by side or one on top of each other. Nested layouts are often part of it. By dragging a divider that appears between the areas, the user can specify how much of the total width / height goes to each area.

I have been building a backend interface in the past weeks, that forced me to look into ways to organize the workspace more efficiently . I could code my own splitter, but is not a priority right now and makes no sense to always reinvent the wheel :)

Here some of the options out there…

Pure jQuery UI

This uses the jQuery UI draggable component and provides limited options :)
