JaS is no longer being worked on. It has evolved into the PictureSlides plugin for DOMAssistant, where all requested features over the years have been added.

What is JaS?

JaS is short for JavaScript Slides and it is a highly customizable JavaScript library for easily turning your images into a collection viewable as a slideshow, and with fading effects, if desired. It also supports automatic thumbnail creation and tagging of images, so the viewers can find the exact images they're looking for. You can use it any way you like in your own web site, and adapt it to your specific needs.

It's also a way to showcase the independence and separation of the interaction and the design of a web page.

The Vanilla theme is the default theme and a good place to start to see JaS in action.

JaS is free to use in any personal or business web site that is free for visitors to use, if this text is included at the top of the JavaScript file:

JaS is developed by Robert Nyman, http://www.robertnyman.com
For more information, please see http://www.robertnyman.com/jas

If you implement it in a situation where you charge your users to see the content, please contact me so we can make an agreement.

Submit your own design

If you're interested, you can submit your own skinned version of JaS, where you're allowed to change the HTML and CSS file/-s, but where the JavaScript file will be the same for all designs.

Due to bandwidth issues, you will have to use the pictures for the slideshow supplied in the package, but feel free to add design images to your skin. Send it to robnyman[at]gmail.com with the subject line "JaS submission".
