A simple li'l plugin that lets you make site content easily tweetable.
Inspired (and by inspired I mean I stole this) from a recent New York Times article doing the exact same thing.
As long as there has been jQuery there have been image carousels created with jQuery. The famous jCarousel has been out since 2006, the same year the first version of jQuery was released. However, with the explosion of users now using their mobile devices for their internet browsing — on iPhones, iPads, and the like — it becomes necessary for jQuery plugins to support a good user experience on these devices. Enter Flexisel, the responsive image carousel with options specifically available for adapting the carousel for mobile and tablet devices.
Check out the demo here. Resize your browser window to see how you the plugin can adjust to the window width.
Flexisel will adapt responsively as the screen width gets smaller...

The jQuery team have made the tough, but inevitable decision to stop supporting IE8 and below as of jQuery v2.0, while maintaining v1.9 as the backwards compatible version for the forseeable future.
In the world of modern, evergreen and mobile browsers, this was a necessary move to ensure jQuery stays relevant. Of course, this split leaves plugin authors with a bit more responsibility.
Where previously we could simply require the most recent version of jQuery, we are now likely to want to support both 1.9.x and 2.x, allowing our plugins to work everywhere from IE6 to the most bleeding edge browsers.
Tooltips are a square deal. They allow for the placement of important information just in the very location this information is needed, regardless of screen real estate.

A jQuery plugin that helps you serve different content to different devices.
Responsive Content is used to load content that is appropriate to the current device's screen size. It is typically used alongside Responsive Design techniques. Note however that Responsive Design and Responsive Content act on different levels: given a particular screen width, the former applies a particular styling to the same content - whereas the latter actually loads different content. It can be used subtly - for example to cause smaller images to be loaded on smaller devices - or to deliver radically different content to different screen widths or device capabilities.
I’ve been wanting to attempt a port of Erik Loyer’s slabtype algorithm for quite some time now and seeing Paravel’s fittext jQuery plugin, in combination with a gloriously hassle-free lunch hour gave me the impetus to attempt it. This is the result – resize the browser viewport to see the effect in action.
