jQuery Knob is powerful jQuery plugin that helps users to create beautiful circular switches like volume controls. It works by transforming any given input fields according to the values defined in its attributes and can be drag-and-dropped to change the value.

It also facilitates users to define the min-max values, default value on initial load, color and put it into read only mode. It supports touch, mousewheel and keyboard events. It is released under GPL and MIT license.

jQuery.suggest is a simple inline autosuggest jQuery plugin. It takes an array of terms as haystack and suggests the user the first item that matches what has been typed to this point. The suggestion is updated with every keystroke. Tab or Enter will accept the suggestion and update the input field accordingly.

If more than one match is found, a small indicator will appear underneath the input (you can still it via CSS as you wish). The user can then use the arrow up/down keys to cycle through the options.

jQuery OrgChart is a plugin that allows you to render structures with nested elements in a easy-to-read tree structure. To build the tree all you need is to make a single line call to the plugin and supply the HTML element Id for a nested unordered list element that is representative of the data you’d like to display.

You can show/hide a particular branch of the tree by clicking on the respective node. It is very easy to style using CSS. If drag-and-drop is enabled you’ll be able to reorder the tree which will also change the underlying list structure.

The jQuery ContextMenu Plugin was designed for web applications in need of menus on a possibly large amount of objects. Unlike the other similar plugins, contextMenu doesn’t need to bind itself to triggering objects. This allows injecting and removing triggers without having to re-initialize or update contextMenu.

The contextMenu can provide a simple list of clickable commands, or offer an in-menu form. This makes very simple attribute modification possible. The contextMenu knows the two callbacks show and hide which can be used to update the state of commands within the menu. This allows en/disabling commands, changing icons or updating the values of contained <input> elements.

Would you like to create a template with a fullscreen grid of images and content areas? The idea is to have a Draggable Image Boxes Grid that shows boxes of thumbnails and menu like items. Once clicked, the thumbnail will expand to the full size image and the menu item box will expand to a fullscreen content area.

The main idea for this template and its effects comes from the beautiful Flash-based website of Stephen Hamilton. To make the grid draggable, they used jQuery.kinetic by Dave Taylor. The jQuery plugin allows smooth drag scrolling and it’s just what we need in our grid.

jTicker takes an elements’ children and displays them one by one, in sequence, writing their text ‘ticker tape’ style. It is smart enough to ticker text from an element heirarchy, inserting elements back into the DOM tree as it needs them. That means almost any content can be ‘tickered’.

jTicker handles any number of alternating cursors (or just one). jTicker’s cursor container is styleable using the class .cursor, or can be defined as your own jQuery object. jTicker reacts to jQuery events “play”, “stop” and “control”.
