Welcome to the JSnip Sample page.

JSnip is a lightweight JavaScript Snipping package, aimed at those who want to add interactive elements to their webpage's but lack the necessary JavaScript knowledge to do so.

JSnip is designed to be incredibly simple to use and only request a basic HTML knowhow to get started. Creating a new JSnip snippet takes no more work than simply adding an additional class.

Getting started with Jsnip

JSnip was designed to be as easy as possible to get up and running on your webpage's.
Just download the jsnip files and include them in to the head of the webpage you wish to use the snippets in.

<!-- Include JSnip -->
<link rel='stylesheet' href='jsnip/jsnip.css' type='text/css' />
<script type="text/javascript" src='jsnip/base.min.js'></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src='jsnip/jsnip.min.js'></script>

Once the above code is included in to your HTML Page, you can use JSnip snippets by simply adding the relevant JSnip class to HTML elements on your page. For example if you want to add a LightBox to an image, all you would need to do is add "jsnipLightBox" to its class.

Full usage instrctions for each snippet can be found below...

How does it work?

The JSnip snippets are all powered by a small JavaScript library called base.js which I am creating alongside JSnip itself.

base.js offers a variety of simple, yet incredibly helpful methods in addition to those provided by JavaScript itself. These include a range of shorthand functions, helper method's(Such as prepend, hasClass, addClass, etc.) , AJAX request wrappers and small animation library consisting of fades, scrolls and slides.

A fully commented version of base.js should be packaged along side the minified version used in this page.
