Quick and Dirty JS slider (qndslider)

We do not need more JS sliders, there is plenty of alternatives. But while looking at them, I realized they all force you into learning their small quirks. That is a total annoyance and waste of time, so I set myself to write a super simple, super easy and understandable slider: the qndslider, the Quick and Dirty Slider.

You can download and use at your leisure: https://github.com/federicojacobi/qndslider

The beauty of it, is that I coded the basics of any slider to save you time, but you are in control of the interaction. I.E. you can call mySlider.next() to move to the next slide, but have a callback on what happens after the slider changes. All the basic funcionality is in, next(), previous(), timers, start(), stop().

It is NOT a jQuery plugin, but it does use jQuery to find the elements.

The Basics
You don’t have to use Divs, it could be UL/LI or P/SPAN as long as the slides have the “slide” class and the wrapper the id you call in the JS, in this case “GreatSlider”.

No, it doesnt have NEXT or PREV arrows, that is up to you. How you place them, how you style them, etc. it is ALL up to you. That way, is a bit hard, but you understand exactly what’s going on. Same goes for current slide and stuff like that. See more detailes at Github.

Introducing Square-War

Originally by puzzle master Scott Kim, Square War takes place on an 8×8 board. Two players take turns, once a move has been done, the piece cannot be moved. The object of the game is to make squares. The larger the square, the more points it’s worth, and they can be at any angle. You win when you get over 150 points AND at least a 15 point lead over your opponent.

There are a couple of versions of this game, including an old-school AOL one. This one however has been modernized with a beautiful interface, online play and facebook integration..

This is a small project that Jeff Herrera (www.amproinspections.com) and I put together just for fun.
