?ontent slider with jCarousel
Today we are going to develop a nice content slider with jCarousel. It is possible that you have already seen similar sliders before, and were looking forward to repeat it. Our slider consists of next elements: initial intro block, control buttons to navigate through the slides, slides itself, and carousel with images (thumbnails) in the bottom. Plus, we can see all the slides one after the other (in alternative layout). This slider works very well in all the most popular browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE7-9 etc).

How to create a game using jQuery
Today we are making a simple puzzle game called “Fifteen”. The purpose of the game is to slide 15 square blocks around to form an image. The goal of this tutorial is to look at this simple browser-based game and explain how it was made line by line. It’s a great way to learn jQuery. For this tutorial, We will use a 2D image square-sliding game I created last week and I will go over each line of code to demonstrate the train of thought. I really do believe that breaking this game up into explanations on per-line basis will help you understand how to use jQuery in your own projects.
Fancy Image gallery – jqFancyTransitions
In our new tutorial I would like to show you how to create a nice looking photo gallery with transition effects. I’m going to use a ready jQuery plugin – jqFancyTransitions. It is easy and effective jQuery plugin to display photos as photo slideshow with fancy transition effects (wave, zipper and curtain). There are a lot of ways to customize the result. All the possible options will be published at the end of this article.

3D CSS3 Book Generator with jQuery
Today we made up my mind to develop something really interesting and useful for you. A new jQuery plugin – as a generator of books. The main idea is to display user friendly book basing on raw text (with images). The book consists of pages, each page consists of 2 sides (as in a usual book), there are buttons Back-Next at the sides of pages to navigate through the pages, and when we turn the pages we see that the pages are turned in 3D (powered by CSS3). In order to achieve this 3D effect we use CSS3 transform (rotate3d, preserve-3d and rotateY) and transition effects.
Webcam Video Capture in HTML5 and CSS3 filters
As we know – HTML5 defines a new element called <video> for embedding video. Usually people use this element to embed a video into web page. It is very convenient. Because the <video> element is designed to be usable without any detection scripts. You can just specify multiple video files, and browsers that support HTML5 video will choose one based on what video formats they support. Now, let’s imagine that we can use the same element to access a user’s camera and microphone. Our article opens these boundaries. I’m going to show you how to capture a video from your webcam in HTML5, and even more, I will show you how to pass this video into <canvas> object, and even – how to apply custom CSS3 filters to our video.
How to create an animated old letter
Today we will create an animated old letter. In this letter, we will use an animated pen. When the pen dries out – we’ll dip it in the ink. And even more, we add the feature to emulate the errors that will be erased during typing. Now let’s look at the implementation.
