Magnific popup is by far my favorite plugin of the year, I’ve always struggled finding great Lightbox plugins but they are usually flawed, Magnific knocks the competition out of the park. It runs fast, displays images in a huge modern fashion, and has all of the options you could ever want.
If you’re anything like me I love sites that let me drop files in to upload them, well Dropzone.js allows you to add that functionality to your site.
After the popularity of Youtube and Medium implimenting a small loading bar at the top of pages when requests are made spawned NProgress which adds this feature to your ajax based application.
Have a ton of photos and need to squeeze them into a fixed space? Well CollagePlus is awesome for that, great for anyone who has a lot of photos to share.
Superbox offers a very unique image gallery experience, much like CollagePlus it’s great for people with a ton of pictures to share.
Shameless Plug: Search as you Type
Figured I’d lastly include my jQuery plugin I wrote this year called sayt.js. It’s great for eCommerce sites or any other site with a search requiring autocomplete functionality.
What were some of your favorite plugins from 2013?
