Jeditable 0.9.0 – In Place Editor for jQuery
It has been a while since I last was really excited about something. Few days ago I found jQuery.
With first impression about jQuery’s syntax is bit confusing:
After reading that jQuery’s main developer John Resig is also a Perl coder it all makes sense. I assume the fact that I did code Perl “back in the days” makes me feel comfortable also with jQuery.
While converting old prototype + script.aculo.us projects to jQuery + interface combinations I also needed an InPlaceEditor plugin. Searching Google revealed several but none of them had all features I needed. Especially possibility to use Textile or Markdown rendering.
So i took the one which i liked to most: Dylan Verheul’s editable. and made a rewrite. Result is Jeditable. At the moment main features are:
- Editable element does not need to be wrapped with form tag.
- Id of edited element is automatically sent when saving changes.
- Can be used with external xhtml renderers such as Textile, Markdown, ReST or any WiKi renderer.
- Build to be reuseable. Does not include any visual efects.
