Codrops just shared a tutorial to create a fullscreen gallery with jQuery. The idea is to have a thumbnail of the currently shown fullscreen image on the side that flips when navigating through the images. The big image will slide up or down depending where we are navigating to. We will add navigation controls for the mousewheel and for keys. The thumbnail will have a zoom and and a fullscreen option, making the image in the background appear in fullscreen mode or as a complete image, resized to fit in the page.
Key features and aspects:
- Liberally licensed: Dual-licensed as MIT and GPL.
What Treesaver is not
- Complete: The framework is still quite immature. There are still a lot of bugs that need to be fixed.
- WYSIWYG: Treesaver is not designed to provide designers with the ability to create pixel-perfect layouts — quite the opposite in fact. Treesaver is designed to give designers the ability to create general design guidelines, which are then used to quickly construct a layout appropriate to the current browser and device.
Isotope: An exquisite jQuery plugin for magical layouts
- Layout modes: Intelligent, dynamic layouts that can’t be achieved with CSS alone.
- Filtering: Hide and reveal item elements easily with jQuery selectors.
- Sorting: Re-order item elements with sorting. Sorting data can be extracted from just about anything.
- Interoperability: features can be utilized together for a cohesive experience.
PIE makes Internet Explorer 6-8 capable of rendering several of the most useful CSS3 decoration features.
CSS3 promises to do away with all that! But as we all know, due to Internet Explorer’s lack of support for any of these features, we must be patient and refrain from using them, and make do with the same old tedious techniques for the foreseeable future.
PIE stands for Progressive Internet Explorer. It is an IE attached behavior which, when applied to an element, allows IE to recognize and display a number of CSS3 properties.
ZEN Audio Player is a single-song HTML5 Audio Player, powered by jPlayer, styled and mostly animated with CSS3.
Warning: This Audio Player is just a demo. It works more or less in Firefox4, Chrome, Safari, Opera, iOS, but there are some differences in the visuals. Also other known issues are:
- Chrome on Windows has a known box-shadow bug where the circles don’t get cut off, no panic, should already be fixed in the nightly.
- Opera starts to rotate funky after the first round, no idea why.
- On iOS the many gradients and box-shadows make the transition slow. It might would need some simpler styling.
- Plus there is no proper fallback for older browsers. A Modernizr and Flash combo should do it.
Codrops want to share their latest experiment with you: the 3D Wall Gallery. Using the Safari browser the images of this gallery will be put into 3D perspective, when scrolling or sliding. When viewed with another browser, the gallery will be shown normally, retaining all the functionality.
For seeing the 3D effect, please try the demo in Safari.
Summarized, you can do the following things in this gallery:
- Hover an image to see a description
- Slide through the images using the jQuery UI Slider at the top
- Use the mouse wheel to scroll through the images
- Use the thumbnail previewer at the bottom to choose an image
- Use the hash anchor for the image in the URL to get to it directly
- Click on an image to slide it to the left (notice the hash anchor in the URL)
- Turn it into a 3D wall when scrolling/sliding (Safari users)
- Flipping the perspective when changing the slide/scroll direction (Safari users)
Explore museums from around the world, discover and view hundreds of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create and share your own collection of masterpieces.
How do I get started?
Simply select a museum from the homepage and then either chose ‘Explore the museum’ or ‘View Artwork’. Once you are in the main site use the drop-down menus or the side info bar to navigate between artworks and museums. Finally create and share your own collections online.
“Cutie” is an icon set cute as a pie shared by Hongkiat. It consists of the most commonly used web icons, designed with one intention- to bring attention and playfulness to your websites, blogs, applications or software. The icons are designed with bright, warm colors, curvy lines and great attention to details.
“Cutie” consists of 20 icons, they come in the following sizes in PNG file format: 48×48, 64×64, 128×128, 256×256 and 512×512. Vector files (AI) of the icons are also included.
Codrops created this little “widget” using Twitter API, jQuery and PHP.
Some of the features are:
- You can get your most recent 100 followers or friends
- Followers or friends are shown in sets of 25 per widget page
- The images of the users are preloaded (unlike in Twitter)
- You can navigate through the set
- You can refresh the entire set
- More information on the user can be seen using a tooltip when hovering over his picture
You can configure and use this in your website to show your followers or friends with some interesting information about them (name, number of followers, number of friends).
A reason why 100 followers or friends are loaded in the beginning is the restriction the Twitter API is giving in the number of results per request. So, in order not to make several requests which would take quite some time, I just get 100. However, you can always click the link to the entire list in the end of the pagination.
The tooltip is created using qTip.

- Infinite/Continuous sliding (always slides in the direction you are going, even at “last” slide)
- Multiple sliders allowable per-page (hashtags only work on first)
- Pauses autoPlay on hover (option)
