Top 5 AJAX Codes for Web Developers

For web developers, AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) provides plenty of enhancement to the design of a website. It makes the web look astonishingly elegant yet effective. For the last couple of months, I have spent a lot of time exploring the various AJAX codes available that could be incorporated to my design and development work. Here, I list out the 5 best free AJAX codes that are of high quality and easy to configure.

1. Ajax Tabs Content

This is a versatile script that lets you display content pulled from external files inside a DIV and organized via CSS tabs. A fully unobtrusive, CSS and HTML based script.

2. Lightbox 2

Lightbox is a simple, unobtrusive script used to overlay images on the current page. It’s a snap to setup and works on all modern browsers. Lightbox 2 uses the Prototype Framework and Scriptaculous Effects Library.

3. Accordian

A smooth and stylish ‘accordian’ effect menu. This allows you to create a dynamic menu that can be expanded by clicking on the headings/titles.

4. Reflection.js

Reflection.js allows you to add reflections to images on your webpages. It works in all the major browsers – Internet Explorer 5.5+, Mozilla Firefox 1.5+, Opera 9+ and Safari. On older browsers, it’ll degrade and your visitors won’t notice a thing. Best of all, it’s under 5KB.

5. Dragable Content

This scripts allow you to make your content dynamic and visitors can redesign the elements contain on your page by simply drag and drop.

I’ll be listing more as I learn more of the AJAX codes available. Have fun trying!
