jQuery Roundup: Isotope, Query, 1.5 Changes, File Upload

Posted by Alex R. Young on .

Isotope

Isotope (GitHub: desandro / isotope) by David DeSandro and
Metafizzy is a layout plugin with lots of options and elegant
animations. The basic Isotope
demo
repositions elements
(literally) when the browser is resized. Elements can also be filtered, and it can cope with resized elements using the reLayout
method
.

Query

Query by TJ Holowaychuk is jQuery for the command-line. It uses Node and jsdom
to provide nifty shell access to jQuery selectors and DOM traversal
features:

curl http://twitter.com | query 'a#logo' | query img attr alt
# Returns 'Twitter'

Node is required, and Query can be installed using
npm with npm install query.

jQuery 1.5 Changes

jQuery 1.5 Changes Part I
by Garrett from Red Ventures discusses the new Ajax module in jQuery 1.5
with some details on \$.Deferred(), which while incredibly
useful, may seem confusing at first.

jQuery File Upload

jQuery File Upload (GitHub: blueimp / jQuery-File-Upload) by
Sebastian Tschan is a jQuery file upload plugin that handles multiple
files, drag and drop, progress bars, cancelled uploads, and a lot more
features.

This plugin also optionally uses jQuery UI for additional interface
features.
