Welcome to the jQuery Plugin Roundup 23. You can send your plugins in

jQuery Simple iPhone-Slide

jQuery Simple iPhone-Slide (demos and API examples) by Cain Chen displays pages in a similar fashion to iOS. Each set of pages
can be set up to scroll horizontally, vertically, or in a matrix, and
pages will snap into display using animations. It will try to detect
swipe speed, like iOS's standard acceleration scrolling.


Formation by Matthew Null can be used to generate forms using simple code like this:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $.formation.addInput({type:"text",labelValue:"First Name:",required:true});
  $.formation.addInput({type:"text",labelValue:"Last Name:",required:true});

The generated forms support validation and error messages. This might
seem like an odd thing to do in JavaScript, but if you're building a
single-page web app with heavy JavaScript reliance it's very
convienient. Combining this with a hot jQuery UI theme will allow you to
create something pretty amazing very quickly.

Barcode Coder

Barcode Coder can
generate barcodes using jQuery (they also have a version for Prototype).
It supports various formats (EAN 8, EAN13, 128), and can output images
to a canvas or a bunch of divs with background colours to create the

$("#bcTarget").barcode('1234567890128', 'ean13', {type: 'datamatrix'});

I thought this plugin would be great if you're generating HTML product
data sheets or invoices.
