10 Fresh and Useful Jquery Plugins

jQuery is one of the most accepted JavaScript library that possesses an enormous collection of plugins which makes it even more powerful. I’ve been searching for few light box models and found few other interesting fresh plugins. So here am putting all those together for your ref…

1. Fotorama

Fotorama is a nice-looking JavaScript gallery with intuitive controls, and flawless compatibility across all computers, iPhones and any mobile devices. It’s easy to install and set up.

Fotorama is free and unrestricted for personal and non-commercial use.


2. Scroller

Scroller is a plugin for jQuery that allows display images in the form of round markers


3. Jquery Wiggle Plugin

The jQuery Wiggle is a jQuery plugin written by Marius Stance - Sergio for Userdot, a plugin that allows you to emulate the wiggle effect icons on an iPhone have when you press and hold down on them. Click on the image to the right to see the effect.


4. Diapo

Diapo slideshow is an open source project. You can suggest changes or improvements if you want. You can download it and use for free, you can also include it in your projects and sell it as part of a bigger work (in this case please consider a donation).


5. Leopard desktop with jquery using jq dock

jQuery adds a whole lot of cool functionality to your websites. It can do a range of things, from animation to AJAX. It’s usually frowned upon to rely heavily on jQuery to design your sites, but it’s fun to go wild every now and then.


6. Animated progress bar

Today we will make dynamic animated progress bar. I think you already know this jQuery widget – Progress bar. By default – this is static widget without any animation.


7. Slidorion

A combination of an image slider and an accordion, the Slidorion displays beautiful images along with a variable length description. With slides linked to each tab, and accompanied by a large array of effects, the Slidorion is a great alternative to the traditional jQuery slider.


8. Expanding Fullscreen grid portfolio

The main idea is to have a grid layout that we create with jQuery Masonry. Clicking to view more, we expand the according item to full screen in order to show a longer description of the item and a representative full screen background image.


9. Image Zoom tour

Showing a main image initially, we want to be able to zoom into certain parts of the image by clicking on tags, using another image for the closer view. This next step can contain other tags that again allow to show more images.


10. Grid navigation effect

Today we want to share some neat grid navigation effects using jQuery. In our examples we will show you ten ways how to navigate through a set of thumbnails. We’ll take a look at some of the possibilities and how to apply the effect.

    I have used fotorama before. I have to say that it's an interesting JQuery plugin, even better than flash.

    Hey guys, you have some good lists and stuff but you guys need to link your post images to what ever the post is describing. I use the "middle click method" of opening new tabs in the background quickly, so it sucks to go to my awaiting tabs and see that they are just image links.

    Awesome site though!
