In the standard course of programming for my job and school, I have occasionally come to the need of a simple function or plugin to numerically sort UL list items. In the spirit of sharing with the community, here is a jQuery plugin that I wrote to accomplish this. It’s quite simple — just does what it does.
Bugged by popular jQuery tab content rotators that a bulky, non semantic, to fast/slow, or can’t use custom HTML anywhere you want? Really Simple jQuery Tabs is a jQuery plugin that tries to address each one of those issues. It’s goal is to be as simple and flexible as possible. You can completely rip-out and replace the CSS with your own, changing elements position, styling, etc. It is quite small: at 844 bytes your bandwidth won’t know the difference!
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.
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…
