Jade Browser, iScroll, VM Form Validator

Jade Browser

Jade Browser by Jonah Fox is an attempt to get Jade templates to work in
browsers. The same author wrote
brequire which helps load CommonJS modules in browsers, so it seems like Jade Browser wraps around the
standard Jade library rather than reimplementing it.


Hugh Fraser sent us a link to iScroll by
Matteo Spinelli, which is a WebKit library for creating iOS native
styled tables with correct scrolling behaviour. It has quite a lot of
features, including pinch to zoom gesture support, custom scrollbars,
pull to refresh, and a paginated carousel.

It doesn't depend on jQuery, so you could use it with your favourite
mobile framework.

Given a few divs and an unordered list, it can be used like this:

myScroll = new iScroll('wrapper');

VM Form Validator

VM Form Validator
by Benjamin Kuker is a new form validation library for MooTools 1.3. All
of the VM Form Validator

are created with jsFiddle, so it's easy to see how it works.

Basic usage is like many form libraries out there:

var form1 = new VMFormValidator('register');
form1.required('username', 'You must enter a username');
form1.minLength('username', 5);
form1.noMatches('password', 'username');
form1.matches('confirmPassword', 'password');

We don't usually feature many non-jQuery libraries here, but I am
interested in them so please share your stuff!
