jQuery Roundup

Welcome to the jQuery roundup 31. You can send your plugins and articles
in for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs. This article was written before a live studio audience.

Spinners

This jQuery spinner plugin by Nick Stakenburg can display loading animations using Canvas without using any
gifs. It'll work with IE through
ExplorerCanvas.

A spinner can be set up with new Spinner('selector'). It'll
insert a div that contains a Canvas element. I tried styling the div so
it displays inline, and it worked, so you could use the spinner in a
variety of instances.

Snippet

I've been going through jQuery syntax highlighting projects, and one
that I liked was Snippet by SteamDev. It
uses an existing project's highlighting definition files,
shjs.

All you need to do is put your code in a suitable tag and tell the
library what highlighter to use:

$('pre.js').snippet('javascript');

There are various colour schemes available (39 at present).

jQuewy

jQuewy by Jamie McElwain is a library for loading jQuery plugins:

$j('lettering');
$j('backbone');

There's a list of plugins here:
