jQuery Sliding Scripts

October 26, 2011 | Reviews | , , , , , ,

There are a lot of jQuery plugins out there for various purposes. I have seen some plugins for the same purpose, for example is creating sliding page/object. Among other them, for me Slidedeck is the easiest one to use.


On its feature page on their website, said that this jQuery plugin can be customized, has API support, custom skins, SEO ready with help of https://seoly.in/, mouse control, gallery support, and many more.

If you’re looking for wordpress jquery slider, Slidedeck also suits for that purpose because it has two type of package: as jQuery plugin and WordPress plugin.  As WordPress plugin, we can easily add sliding image to a post or page using easy-to-use (WYSIWYG) editor.

Both plugin (jQuery and WordPress) are available in two kind of license. For basic usage, free version is more than enough to beautify our web pages. But if you’re a bad-ass code writer, you can purchase paid version to get more features to build your super-dupper web pages.

Here are some examples, you can see that it’s awesome. Even for free version.

And one thing that will make you, web developers, happy is that this plugin will work at any major browsers you currently have.

NicEdit: Lightweight Web Based WYSIWYG Editor

May 18, 2009 | Reviews | , , , , , ,

After a couple of years using TinyMCE as my prefered web based WYSIWYG editor, I started to look at another one. My brand new star is Nice Edit, a lightweight text editor that come with basic styling tools.

NicEdit web based WYSIWYG editor

What I like from this editor is NicEdit doesn’t use another HTML page to load its tools, it just ‘draw’ it on the screen. Amazingly, it’s only using one image for all the menus, using image as sprite.

I don’t like when TinyMCE loads another file to display link properties or image properties. It’s wasting time, eat up web space and more bandwidth to waste.

Although NicEdit isn’t as complete as TinyMCE, but it fit my needs. It gives me simplicity.


Carakan, Opera’s Javascript Engine

February 9, 2009 | Browsers, Javascript | , , , , , ,

OperaA few days ago, Opera Software announced their newly born javascript engine for their future web browser. The engine’s named Carakan, the name was taken from Javanese ancient alphabet. Carakan is pronounced as cha-ra-kan, as cha in charm word. There is another name for javanese alphabet, hanacaraka, but carakan seem fit to this newly born javascript engine.

Why Carakan? Based on their FAQ page, carakan is real javanese letter/script. So the engine named Carakan will be the true javascript, or the purest javascript engine. Sound cool.

I and Agung were curious that the name carakan was from Bruce Lawson. We read his blog post about proper java script, there is a picture of original javanese alphabet there. Well, no matter who get the idea for the name, I proud that Opera named their javascript engine as carakan.

At the same time, they also announced Vega, Opera’s new hardware accelerated vector graphics library.


Carakan, Engine Javascript dari Aksara Jawa

February 6, 2009 | Opera | , , , , , , , ,

Opera Software baru saja merilis sebuah engine Javascript baru untuk browser mereka di masa depan, engine Javascript yang baru itu diberi nama Carakan. Yang menarik adalah nama “Carakan” ini berasal dari penamaan sistem alfabet Jawa, hanacaraka atau biasa disebut tjarakan (carakan).

Kenapa menggunakan nama alfabet Jawa? Karena Opera ingin engine ini menjadi engine yang njawani, istilah kerennya adalah “it’s the purest javascript”.

Jika Anda menganggap saya mengada-ada, silahkan Anda baca sendiri FAQ-nya. Juga bisa download wallpaper resminya lho. Saya jadi makin cinta sama Opera 😀
