There’s a reason this library is called “BackBone”. If you’ve been a web developer for a few years, you’ve no doubt run across messy coding—and you understand the side effects of it too (not only as it affects your work, but also the UI). This library was built so that developers would have an easy way to use “models” to streamline and improve their coding.
Boba is the library developers need for Google Analytics integration. Beyond that, this library intends to make the process of using Google Analytics tracking on your website easier.
While there are many WordPress plugins that can enable you to use a masonry-type layout (like what you see on Pinterest) on your website, they’re usually too bulky and slow to load. If you’re looking to put bricklaying styles to use, check out this lightweight library.
Are you a fan of sliders and carousels? Or maybe you’re looking to showcase a high-resolution photography portfolio? Either way, you’ll definitely need a lightweight means for creating lightboxes. This library offers a number of flexible customizations in the way of cropping, sizing, navigation, and more.
If you’ve spent any extended period of time working in the DOM, you know how tedious it can be. While it’s a necessary tool when you want to create dynamic content on your website, it shouldn’t have to be painful to work in. The D3 library is the solution for that, simplifying the process of attaching data to the DOM.
Have you ever wanted to create a really cool dropping effect on your website? While you usually find this sort of animation in a drop-down navigation menu, there are other ways you can drop content on your site—and this is the library to help you do it.
Ever wanted to give your website a more exciting scroll to the top functionality? The Elevator library will do that for you.
Single-page websites can be a fun experience, when done right. While many developers rely on parallax scroll or simple static layouts for single-page website design, there is another way to tackle this. The FullPage library helps you create a full page website, though each new “section” of the page can only be accessed either through a scroll of the mouse pad or a click on the static navigation.
Icons are a popular design element, what with minimalism and Google’s Material Design relying on these to add personality to an otherwise simple design. While icons are small contributions to the bigger picture, you can still have fun by giving them movement and interactivity.
For those of you not too young to understand this reference, this library is all about telling your visitors: “u can touch this”. In other words, if you want to add click, pinch, swipe, and other touch gestures to your site, use the Hammer library.
Want more control over how your website’s interactive UI renders? That’s where the React library comes in to play. If you’re familiar with the MVC pattern, this library handles the “V” (or view) part of the equation.
If you’ve struggled with making images on your website fully responsive, look no further. This lightweight library gives you the ability to create a truly responsive functionality for your images, so you never have to sacrifice readability or compromise the full viewing of them again.
