jQuery 1.6.3

jQuery 1.6.3 has been released, not long after RC1. This version fixes a much
discussed XSS attack, animation browser tab switchiing issues, and
better handling of HTML5 attribute names.


lccache (License: Apache 2.0) by Pamela Fox and John Munsch emulates memcache for client-side caching.
John Munsch's port uses
Lawnchair instead of HTML5 Local Storage, which means it should work in older browsers.

The library has three methods: set, get and

//          key,        value,          time/expiration
lccache.set('greeting', 'Hello World!', 2);

// Returns 'Hello World!'

// Objects can also be stored
lccache.set('data', { 'greeting': 'Hello World!' }, 2);

Pamela's real world examples included developing against JSON APIs on
unreliable networks. The most obvious example is a mobile web app. I'd
also consider it for single page apps, because it makes knowing when to
refresh data that might change on the server a lot easier.


Storagify (GitHub: ekdevdes / Storagify, License: MIT/GPL) by Ethan Kramer combines HTML5
contenteditable with Local Storage to make potentially any
element editable. Calling
\$('selector').storagify('storageKey'); makes the element
editable, and changes will be visible after a page refresh.

Now imagine combining this with a simple JSON API and you've got
yourself a CMS in minutes!
