  • I’m currently working on quite a few new things for jKit. Some are just small new features for existing commands, but there are two major developments coming in the next releases. One is hash/history management for things like tabs, accordion, ajax … and the second one is a fully documented source code. Here’s a very early preview: https://jquery-jkit.com/dev/jkit.docu.php

    It will be faster in the final version. It’s heavily inspired by Docco, but actually written in PHP with some additional jKit. I will open source the script as well, so stay tuned for that if you have your own JavaScript library and Docco for some reason ins’t working for you.

    PS: Yes, I know there are already unfinished PHP Docco clones, but I just wasn’t happy with any of them and I need a few additional features for jKit. 🙂

  • this is great, sometimes we need to create new effects, changing the source code of the plugin, and it’s easy, but with documentation will be even better.

    For example, I do preciseu a slide of images with thumbnails, so I could do this effect using the “tabs” or “pagination” I know that the ideal would be using the effect “slide” but in this case I needed to write this in the plugin…

  • A few updates: https://jquery-jkit.com/dev/jkit.docu.php (clear your cache if something looks weird)

    It’s currently not fully tested in all browsers, especially IE, but Chrome should work well. A few things you can do:

    • Try out searching for “ticker”, it should show you all the codeblocks that contain the text “ticker. This will nicely get you everything related to the ticker command!
    • Clear the search box again and select “Plugin Functions” from the menu left to the searchbox. As you can see, it not only jumps to the correct part inside the code, it adds the right hash to the url, too. If you copy that url and open it in a new window, it will again jump to the right position on the page and change the menu to “Plugin Functions”. This way you can save bookmarks and send link to the exact part of the code you want to show.
    • Now click “The Source” in the menu and than on the checkbox. You should now see some additional “compiler instructions”. This instructions are there so I can later create custom plugins that only contain those commands you actually need. It’s also useful to add coder tasks that should not show up in the normal documentation.

    The jKit version used on this page has a lot of small new features. You can download it if you want, but there are currently no guarantees that it will work 100% in all browsers. (Use Uglify to minifie it). It should be out anyway in about a week together with the fully documented source.

  • Phew, that was a lot of work! The jKit source is now fully documented:


    All I have to do now is run some tests, browser checks and version 1.1.28 goes live. 🙂
