Google Ajax APIs: Building a Navigation Bar with the Easing jQuery Plug-in
Google Ajax APIs: Building a Navigation Bar with the Easing jQuery Plug-in (Page 1 of 4 )
Simply put, Easing is a handy jQuery plug-in that allows you to extend the number of easing options that come bundled by default with the libraryís ďanimate()Ē method. While its functionality is quite impressive, what really makes Easing stand out from the numerous jQuery extensions available on the web is its smooth integration with the libraryís API. This feature permits programmers to add appealing animation effects to any web page element with a single method call.
To prove my point, in earlier parts of this series I demonstrated how to build a hierarchical navigation bar whose corresponding subsections were animated through some of the effects provided by Easing. Hopefully, this experience proved that itís possible to create a dynamic user interface without compromising its accessibility. Thatís not too bad, right?
Therefore in this final part of the series, Iím going to show how to accomplish this via the Google Ajax APIs. This way youíll be able to use this sample links bar without having to install jQuery or even the Easing plug-in on your own testing web server.
