Tonight I created my first jQuery widget utilizing the widget factory. For now I am calling the widget ‘Cinch’ but that is just until I can get the domain secured (I am too tired to do it right now). The widget is a simple element animated flyout.
I have to yet to make own widget for a few different reasons but one in particular is not having the need to do so. I figured since I am trying to drum up some extra business, it would be advantageous to start showcasing my skills publicly through GitHub and Codepen.
jQuery is a library that I use frequently so I think that it is pretty cool that I am finally creating widgets of my own. I seen a great meter tutorial on tutsplus that I am thinking about implementing to practice on.
Sometime over the weekend I will be posting a link to a demo for those who would like to check it out. Thanks for checking in! As always, I am Courtney Hall, a freelance UI/UX Web developer serving Carmel, Indianapolis and clients nationally.
