Smart Lists: jQuery Plugin - v1.0.3

What it Does

Smart Lists is light-weight (8KB) script that lets you convert "flat" HTML lists of information into categorized, paginated lists. In essence, it's a presentation layer for improving the readability of related information, without requiring a database or server-side script. It's extremely browser friendly and supports Firefox 2, IE6+, Safari 2+ and Opera 9+.

Smart Lists is available as both a Scriptaculous-Prototype and a jQuery extension. This page documents the jQuery version.

Configurable options:

  • Choice for the item hide/show effect (Blind, Fade/Appear, Grow/Shrink, none)
  • Choice for changing page effect (Blind, Fade/Appear, Grow/Shrink, none)
  • Control over speed at which effects occur
  • Number of items per page
  • Option to show/hide the number of items in each category
  • Complete control over CSS classes (to ensure compatibility with any webpage)
  • Downgrades gracefully (i.e. if JS not enabled)
