Coding Jack


Jacked: A lightweight and highly efficient JavaScript animation engine

Jacked combines requestAnimationFrame and CSS3 and allows you to specifically target either or for any given environment. As an example, you can choose to use requestAnimationFrame for Firefox and Chrome, and for the same tween use CSS3 for Android and IOS -- giving you maximum control over all your animations!


Simple Mobile Swipe Plugin based on code from jQuery Mobile

jQuery Mobile's swipe functionality is awesome. Unfortunately you have to load in jQuery Mobile's entire script to use it. This plugin extracts the exact swipe logic from jQuery Mobile and turns it into a simple to use plugin. So if catching left and right swipe events is all you need, this plugin is for you.

Create a mobile friendly nav menu dynamically and represent submenu tree

Dynamically convert a menu into a mobile friendly drop-down and represent nav's original submenu tree structure. End Resut:

;(function() {
	var jQueryMobileURL = "http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.0.1/jquery.mobile-1.0.1.min.js";
	if(typeof jQuery !== "undefined" && typeof Modernizr !== "undefined") {
		if(Modernizr.touch) {
			jQuery(document).ready(function() {
	(function($) {
		$.cj = {colorBoxSwipe: function() {
			if(typeof $.mobile === "undefined") {
				var mobileLoaded = false;
                                // check to make sure jQuery Mobile isn't already being loaded by the document
				$("script").each(function() {
					if($(this).attr("src") === jQueryMobileURL && !mobileLoaded) {
						if(typeof $.mobile !== "undefined") {
							mobileLoaded = true;
				function init(event) {
					$.extend($.mobile, {
						autoInitializePage: false,
						ajaxEnabled: false,
						linkBindingEnabled: false,
						hashListeningEnabled: false,
						pushStateEnabled: false,
						defaultPageTransition: "none",
						defaultDialogTransition: "none",
						loadingMessage: false,
						pageLoadErrorMessage: false
					if(typeof $.colorbox !== "undefined") {
						$(".cboxPhoto").live("swipeleft", function() {

				if(!mobileLoaded) {
					$(document).one("mobileinit", init);
					var js = document.createElement("script");
					js.type = "text/javascript";
					js.src = jQueryMobileURL;

ColorBox Mobile Touch Swipe

This script will add jQuery mobile swipe to ColorBox images. It's written to try to be as unobtrusive as possible and will only load jQuery-Mobile if touch is supported. Modernizr is required to test for touch events.
