jQuery Roundup

Posted by Alex R. Young on .

Welcome to the jQuery roundup 36. You can send your plugins and articles
in for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs.

jQuery.highlightRegex

jQuery.highlightRegex (MIT License, demo) by Johann Burkard highlights text based on a regular expression:

$('selector').highlightRegex(/text/ig);

It's the kind of thing I could imagine being useful in a web application
that deals with a lot of text (like a notepad, ereader, etc.)

jQuery Weather Widget

The jQuery weather widget
1.0

(Creative Commons Attribution) by Seth Wright displays a nice little weather widget based on data from an XML file. The author uses PHP to
parse the XML, but I thought a possible extension to the project would
be to use jQuery.find to read the XML from a JSONP weather
API (if there is one, if not a server-side component will be required).

Booklet

Booklet (dual MIT and GPL License) is a plugin by Will Grauvogel that displays content in a
flip-book layout. There's a tutorial that uses this plugin to create an
impressive Moleskine-themed page: Moleskine Notebook with jQuery
Booklet

(demo).

The Booklet API is very simple:

$(function() {
  $('#mybook').booklet({
    width:  600,
    height: 200
  });
});
