jQuery Plugin Roundup 11: Default, YoxView, Panel Magic

Posted by Alex R. Young on .

Welcome to the jQuery Plugin Roundup, episode 11. Remember you can send
your plugins in for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs.

Default

Default (MIT and GPL) by James Brumond can be used to manage default text for form fields. The API can be
accessed by calling defaultText on a form element:

$('input').defaultText({ defText: 'Enter your first name' }))

Alternatively, title attributes will be used for the
defText option when calling defaultText with
no parameters.

YoxView

YoxView (MIT license) by Yossi Kolesnicov is yet another lightbox-style image viewer. It can work
with video sites like YouTube, and also image sharing sites like Flickr.
It's also optimised for search engines. Multiple images can be assigned
for a single thumbnail as well, which not all lightbox libraries
support.

After installing the script and required assets, usage is pretty simple:

$("#images").yoxview([options]);

The expected HTML is a set of images inside a div. For more details, see
the API documentation.

Panel Magic

jquery-panel-magic (MIT License) by Craig Hoover is a curious plugin that turns a page into a
set of panels that can be navigated between in a fashion similar to
Apple's Exposé (or Safari's home screen). The author is experimenting
with iPad support, and it seems like a good fit for touchscreens.
