JavaScript Scripts and Plug-ins

I know absolutely zilch about JavaScript – aside from the fact it’s not Java.  That’s about it.  Oh, and it’s used for front-end development on websites.  That’s it.  That’s all I know.

Breaking front-end web development down into its three main parts, you have HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.  In the simplest terms, HTML provides a website’s structure, CSS makes it look pretty, and JavaScript does the heavy lifting by converting a static webpage into one users can interact with – from form input to hover effects and media carousels, JavaScript can do it all.

To see some of these effects in action, check out Unheap.com.  Similar to a stock photo website, Unheap.com is full of user-created JavaScript scripts and JQuery plug-ins.  Some are free to download and use while others require some form of licensing.  With over 1000 plug-ins and featuring categories like UI, Input, Navigation, and Media, you’re bound to find inspiration for your next web project.
