jQuery Roundup

Welcome to the jQuery Plugin Roundup 26. You can send your plugins in
for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs.

jquery-swapable

jquery-swapable (MIT License) by Vadim Kiryukhin is a little bit like Sortable but instead swaps items. Usage is similar to Sortable, except it also requires a
cursorAt parameter:

$('#swappable').swappable({
  items: '.itemClass',
  cursorAt: { top: -10 } 
});

It will work with
lists, grids, and horizontal
rows
.

The project is hosted on Google Code:
jquery-swapable.

jQuery Templates

I've mentioned Scott Guthrie's Microsoft-supported jQuery plugins
before, but now there's news jQuery
Templates
will be
included with jQuery 1.5.

Official jQuery
Plugins

jquery.sg.video

jquery.sg.video (MPL) by Filippo Pacini is based on Video for
Everybody
, an idea put forward by
Kroc Camen. The plugin uses feature detection from
Modernizr, and can provide information on format support through \$.support.video. For example, the
browser I'm using right now returns this:

{"ogg": "", "h264": "probably", "webm": ""}

If your videos have the same file name with different extensions for
each format, you can set up a video like this:

 $('#video-container').video('video_file_name', options);

This is a minimal yet useful plugin -- most video plugins attempt to
provide a complete solution, with fancy player graphics and other
features. This one keeps things simple instead.
