jQuery – could this be one answer to the flash / apple debacle?

September 24th, 2010 by Edward

Recently I have begun to delve deeper into the world of jQuery. What I didn’t fully realise previously is that can do many of the jobs that we have previously used flash within our sites for!

So, slide shows, animation, flashy menus (pun intended) … all do-able using jQuery and then instantly available to those mac devices – iPad and iPhone etc that wont show flash.

Of course, there’s bound to be stuff that jQuery wont do. And users need to have javascript on. Having said that, for the few users who don’t have js on you can “gracefully degrade” so that pages wont fall apart.

You can check out some examples of jQuery in action on these sites:

Coin Street Community Builders (slide show on home page)

4eyes design – (portfolio, clients, services pages)
