jQuery Plugin Roundup 12: Animations, Twitterize

Posted by Alex R. Young on .

Welcome to the jQuery Plugin Roundup, episode 12. Remember you can send
your plugins in for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs.

Animated Box Shadows

This shadow animation plugin (MIT and GPL
License
) by Edwin Martin
animates shadows using CSS. It's an interesting effect when used with
mouse over events.

$('#box1').animate({shadow: '0 0 30px #44f'});

Colour Animation

jquery.animate-colors.js, by the same author with the same licensing, can animated colour
properties. It can animate a lot of different properties, and works more
reliably than Color Animations by John Resig:

$('#demodiv').animate({backgroundColor: '#400101'})

Edwin's plugins all work using the standard jQuery animate
method, so they're transparent and work the way you're used to.

Twitterize

Twitterize (MIT License) by Vicente Plata shows a floating div with Twitter updates from a
particular user.

It'll need a bit of styling to make it look really cool, but it's a
simple drop-in plugin so it shouldn't be too much work:

$('#user').twitterize({target: 'dailyjs'});
