PictureSlides plugin for jQuery – create compelling slideshows and thumbnail galleries

Some time ago I released PictureSlides, a DOMAssistant plugin to create compelling slideshows and thumbnail galleries, with a number of customizable options. Recently, I ported PictureSlides to also work with jQuery, so if you want to do something spiffy with images, I recommend you check it out!

DOMAssistant 2.7.1 released, future plans and asking for help

As most of you are aware of, me and a small group of very talented people are working on our JavaScript library of choice, DOMAssistant, because we have a strong belief that light-weight code, fast and accurate performance, Unicode support and modularity is very important, and crucial for the future state of the web.

DOMAssistant 2.5.6 released – AJAX module post method has been fixed (now 2.5.7 version)

I just released DOMAssistant 2.5.5 yesterday, but with the feedback given, some tweaks had to be made to the new AJAX module post method. Instead of updating the same version multiple times, which is wrong, I’ve new made a new minor release where the issues have been taken care of.

So, download the new 2.5.6 version if you’re using DOMAssistant.

Updated January 14th

Just as mentioned by chenghong, I made a mistake and stripped the URL in AJAX GET requests as well. Something I knew, but that’s what I get for preaching about assertions but not applying it properly to my own code. I guess my intuition took overhand for a while. ;-)

Anyway, I’ve released a 2.5.7 version of DOMAssistant now (available for download) where everything should be sorted. If you’re using the 2.5.5 or 2.5.6 version, everything should be working fine but the AJAX module’s get and post methods, but please update to make sure you have the latest working version.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you.

DOMAss – The DOM assistant

Updated March 2nd 2007

DOMAss now has a new name, DOMAssistant, and it is also possible to run it side-by-side with other JavaScript libraries such as Prototype and jQuery. For more information, please read: DOMAss renamed to DOMAssistant, with added Prototype/jQuery compatibility.

Updated March 6th 2007

Per Zimmerman made me aware of the fact that I wasn’t as consistent when checking for names and whitespace in the addClass and removeClass as I am in the hasClass method, so this has been fixed to address any potential issues you might have had. Just download the DOMAssistantCSS JavaScript file and you should be good to go. :-)

DOMAssistant 2.0 released!

Updated October 4th 2007

The DOMAssistantCompressed JavaScript file has been updated. My compression approach was a little too effective for the special DOMReady fix for Internet Explorer, so necessary code for optimal performance was unfortunately removed. This has now been addressed, so please download the new version if you use the compressed file.

Updated October 19th 2007

The DOMAssistantCompressed JavaScript file is updated again. I noticed a problem with the elmsByAttribute method in IE where the compression resulted in a wrong reference, returning incorrect results. Download the new version and it will be fine.

When I released my EJ code, while I felt that it contained very useful functions, it didn’t feel properly packaged. Also, I’ve always wanted a proper base to stand on for various DOM interaction, so I didn’t have to start from scratch in every project.

So now, I proudly present DOMAss!
