The Polaroid Photo Viewer - Non-Full Screen

Pretty fast after I placed the Polaroid Photo Viewer with CSS3 and jQuery example online, I received loads of e-mails and comments requesting another feature. The original example was only full-screen, but people wanted it to "stick" to a box (Placing it inside a <div>).

By making a couple of changes to the original code, I managed to make this work too. So today, I present you the non-full screen version of the popular Polaroid Photo Viewer with CSS3 and jQuery.

The Polaroid Photo Viewer - Non-Full Screen

Try dragging the polaroids around in the demo. You'll be able to do so, but the surrounding division seems to prevent the user from actually dragging it outside it's container.

Just like with the original example, this example only works on modern browsers supporting CSS3 (Safari, Chrome and Firefox 3.5). This probably would work with Opera too, but I haven't tested it.

Now to show you which small changes are made to the original script to make this one work.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery

If you're a regular visitor of Marcofolio, you know I love to create (and share) some wicked Proof of Concepts (For example: the Polaroid photo viewer and the iPhone Contacts App). They are nothing more than showing some amazing potential of certain techniques.

Today, I wanted to transfer the amazing slick Skype (for Mac) layout to your own webbrowser. Not the full layout: Only the menu where all your friends are listed. For the nifty layout we're going to use CSS3 and for the extra functionality (ofcourse) jQuery.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery

Features:

  • Expanding and hiding the contact details.
  • Nifty layout using CSS3.
  • Extra info (behind each name that is not expanded) is added through jQuery.

Sadly, just like all other CSS3 examples placed here, not all browsers support this functionality. Only browsers that support the -webkit prefix (Safari and Chrome) and the latest version of Firefox (3.5 through the -moz prefix) are fully working. Other browsers will show the menu without the extra markup.

OK, here we go! Let's see how you can create one of these wicked Skype menu's yourself. The users listed in the demo are the friends of Marcofolio (same that are placed in the footer) with their Twitter profile picture and links.

Advanced keypress navigation with jQuery

A while ago, an article called "A fancy Apple.com-style search suggestion" was placed here. Many people loved it and already used the search suggestion in their latest web project.

Still, readers gave some criticism about the script. According to Jape, Simon and others the script was missing one vital element which the Apple search does have: keypress navigation (keyboard accessibility). For that reason, I'm presenting you a way you can improve that script yourself using advanced keypress navigation with jQuery.

Advanced Keypress Navigation

Check out the demo so you can try it yourself: There is a simple menu displayed which reacts to the Up and Down arrows, as well as Enter (or Return) to follow the link.

The script is (a bit) advanced because of the extra functionality when the user combines the mouse hover and keypresses. Want to know how to create it yourself? Check out the source code or follow these steps in this tutorial.

jSlickmenu: A jQuery plugin for slick CSS3 menus

After releasing several jQuery scripts, I wanted to take the whole jQuery programming to another level. For that reason, I'm proud to release my first jQuery plugin for everyone to use.

The plugin called jSlickmenu, creates, well, slick menus with jQuery. Combined with some great CSS3 features likes rotation and shadows, this plugin can really lift up your design. It's fairly easy to use, highly customizable and pretty cool (and fun!) to see.

As usual, you can freely use and modify this script where you want and I hope it can be of use in your next (web)project.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Sadly, CSS3 and HTML5 aren't the standards (yet) these days (when will it ever be?). Since this demo is using CSS3, not all browsers will be able to show off the full effect. Because of this, it only works on Apples Safari and Google Chrome as they are the only browsers supporting the Transform and Box-Shadow property of CSS3 via the -webkit- prefix. Mozillas Firefox 3.5 is getting these properties too (with the -moz- prefix). So, for now, this is just for fun - Other browsers will display the menu, but (sadly) in a whole different way.

The plugin has been made as extensible as possible, so you can also view a demo with advanced settings. Make sure you check out the video demo and how to use the plugin.

20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS

As you might know, I really love proof of concepts (and experiments). Just showing to others that you can create that crazy idea is a very good thing. Both for you (you just showed that you actually can create is), but especially for others (that can probably use your idea in another, maybe more useful and better way). Since the sky is the limit with several webdesign techniques, programmers can get really creative and innovative

I created a roundup containing 20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS, showing off some crazy experiments found on the web. Most of them are just really for fun or just beautiful to watch. They all don't have any real practical use (yet) and really seek some better use.

20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS

Noura Yehia from the popular Noupe allowed me to place the article over at their website (Thanks Noura!). If you want to check out this amazing roundup, make sure you read the (guest)article on Noupe.

It was really fun putting this list together. Some of the techniques just show a nice effect and don't have any practical use. Other techniques are way more useful and have a lot more potential of actually using in webdesign/webdevelopment work these days. Always look for new opportunities using the language, technique or framework that you use.

A fancy Apple.com-style search suggestion

Apple is known to create beautiful products (next to the needed functionality of course). I already wrote several articles on how you can transfer some amazing iPhone designs to your webbrowser, I own a MacBook Pro (which also looks pretty sleek) and many other products from Apple are well known for their amazing design.

The website from Apple isn't less: The layout is simple yet beautiful. Yet, one of the most awesome things about the website is the search functionality. It gives you suggestions (with images) about the several products they offer, making it really user-friendly.

Today, we're trying to recreate the effect from that website by creating a fancy apple.com-style search suggestion. Make sure you check out the demo (or visit Apple.com) to see this awesome effect work.

A fancy Apple.com-style search suggestion

This example makes use of several techniques: MySQL (for the database), HTML/CSS for styling, PHP for retrieving the data and jQuery for the AJAX request. How about that for some nice way of combining powerful techniques to create something nice like this. You do need some basic knowledge about these techniques to fully understand this tutorial.

Demo Apple.com-style search suggestion   Download Apple.com-style search suggestion

IMPORTANT NOTE:
As you can see, the demo is located on another server. The reason for this is, that every time a user presses on his keyboard, a call is made to the MySQL database. When loads of users do loads of calls (at the same time), this could result in slowing down the database. The answer for this would that the results should be cached - Something that isn't implemented right now.

Safari, Chrome and Opera are currently the only webbrowsers that support the drop shadow effect around the the search results. Other browsers will simply display the results without the drop shadow.

This technique would be great if it were converted to a plugin for a CMS (WordPress/Joomla/Drupal etc.), but also just very cool to have on your website.
