Ajax Call Loading Spinner jQuery Plugin Ver. 1.0
This jQuery plugin will display a "loading" spinner in the middle of the screen every time it detects an AJAX call, blocking user interaction until the call finishes, it will automatically fade away once this happens. It's cross browser compatible (tested on Firefox, Safari, Chrome and IE, but should also work in Opera), works on mobile browsers as well.
It's licensed under GPL 3.0. For any comments or contributions please contact me at igran [at] betagrafico [dot] com.
Download one of the JS files and copy it to a web accessible location on your server, then just add this line to the header section of your page:
No configuration and no styling required. This is a jQuery plugin, so make sure you load jQuery before you call the script.
Don't forget to change the path to the correct location where jquery.loading.min.js or jquery.loading.js resides on your server.
Visual character patterns from a book or text
Some time ago i was curious about finding certain patterns in the text of books, so i wrote this code that creates an image converting every character in a text to a pixel with a color. Same colors for same characters. The colors are chosen randomly every time the image is generated.
