jQuery Switches to Zoho Forums

An early morning tweet by John Resig of the jQuery team, and followed by an email from Zoho, announced the switch of the jQuery forum from Google Groups to Zoho. Zoho Discussions is providing their on-line forum tool for free to open-source projects.


jQuery Conference 2009

The jQuery conference is a two day conference taking place in Boston at Microsoft Cambrige.


A Insanley Simple jQuery Accordion

We have a couple of projects currently running in parallel and as always resources are a bit in short supply. This has given me the opportunity to put on my developer hat a bit and help out a bit. This time with building a simple jQuery accordion. I didn't want to use the accordion widget so I quickly put together a quick little example for the developer to integrate into the project.


jQuery UI 1.7 Released

I'm a little late with this news but wanted to quickly post that the jQuery team released a new version of their UI framework and it's packed with new features.


JQuery's Rockstar Causes Community Uproar

It appears that the fresh new look proved a little too much for the JQuery community.


JQuery's Rockstar New Look

JQuery unveiled their new "JavaScript Rock Star" look today, and I have to admit, I think its kind of cool. While not as "serious" (read:Corporate) a UI design than the previous one it certainly is more fun.

jQuery UI's new home

Yesterday JQuery announced that they will be including the previously unreleased jQuery effects suite "Enchant" into jQuery UI.

Additionally jQuery UI can now be found at with a really great UI not surprisingly.

Additionally Paul mentions that Liferay will be standardizing all their products to use jQuery. This tight integration of jQuery by Liferay is sure to catapult jQuery's popularity even more.

This is quite an interesting partnership and will undoubtedly have an impact on the company I work for as well as we have been flip/flopping between ExtJs and jQuery but since we plan on doing a lot more work with Liferay I imagine there will be more a lean towards jQuery.

JQuery Charting Plugin

I have been playing around with EXTJS for a while now and have, at the same time, been hearing quite a bit about JQuery but haven't really looked at it.

It seems to have a rather large and vibrant community and a heck of a lot of plugins available. One plugin that caught my eye, specifically because I recently pointed out a post about the Google Charting API, is a charting plugin for JQuery called
