A grumble can be rotated around a given element at any angle, all 360 degrees. Any distance can be specified. Any CSS style can be applied. There’s auto-magic size adjustment for use with localised text. FX queues for animating multiple grumbles. And it works in IE6+, and modern browsers.

Cute tooltip bubble.

Enter our jQuery Ajax Overlay plugin. It’s just over 300 lines of code and weighs in at 13kb (or 4kb when compressed). There’s also some corresponding CSS for styling the overlay itself.

Nice work from the The Guardian dev team.

jQAPI – Alternative jQuery Documentation – For Version 1.6

The jQuery documentation is great, very complete, nicely written and with a lot of examples and demos. The only thing that bugs me is the way we have to find the right documentation for what we search for. Try to search for the .is() function for example. Over 100 matches before the actual function I am looking for?!*) And it is a fixed layout which means even on my big screen I have to scroll all the way down and have to scan for it. There have to be a better way, obviously.
