And oh yeah: they rotate!

I have used several jQuery tab/content rotators/panels/things and, although each has been extensively developed and tested, am always left with the feeling that something is missing:

  • This one doesn’t let use put your own HTML in the tab-link
  • That one only supports images
  • The other one is 10,000 lines of code and you only use it once
  • This one cycles too fast/slow

The purpose of Really Simple jQuery Tabs is to be really simple and really flexible.

You can:

  • Add HTML to your semantically correct list item tab-links
  • Panes are regular DIVS – put images, text, AJAX loaded content, etc. up in that DIV
  • Specify (down to milliseconds) how fast to cycle, if you want to cycle at all
  • bonus feature: only 844 bytes!
  • Completely customize the CSS to affect layout, coloring, etc…

Implement it like this:

And the markup looks like this:

Notice that semantic markup? Yeah, me too. It was written to be as flexible and extensible as possible.
