“jQuery Image Magnify enables any image on the page to be magnified by a desired factor when clicked on, via a sleek zoom in/out effect. The enlarged image is centered on the user’s screen until dismissed. It works on both images with and without explicit width/height attributes defined. This means you can take a large image that by default would look out of place when shown, shrink it using explicit width/height attributes, then enable users to magnify it on demand to its original dimensions when the image is clicked on using this script.”
QuickFlip is a jQuery plugin that let’s you flip any piece of HTML markup over like a card. Version 2 is much faster as we can see and it seems that it’s a bit smoother. Triggering and styling is much easier as well as the plugin provides all styling automatically (no need for a separate stylesheet).
“This plugin extends (but is still backward compatible with) the core $.ajax functionality to allow automatic parsing of responses for a special syntax of “multi-part responses”. If a response matches this format, the response will be split out and treated as multiple responses, each being called to the proper “success” handler. If the response doesn’t “look” like multi-part, then it falls through and behaves exactly as normal.”
You ‘ll find this plugin useful if:
- You need to return a block of HTML (without encoding/escaping it into JSON), and a separate JSON packet with data.
- You need to return an HTML template and some JSON data separately, without any obfuscation/encoding/escaping of either.
- You need to return some HTML, some JSON, and also some CSS, and handle all three types of data separately.
- You need to return two or more different blocks of HTML, and need to handle each separately.
