Libraries to Enhance Your Website

Here is a list of sources you can use to enhance your website. Most of these are simple to implement, but note that ‘simple’ is not a synonym for ‘easy.’ You should expect to spend some time experimenting and learning if you choose to implement one of these. That is why this is extra credit.

A little goes a long way in enhancing your site. There are many more options available besides those listed here:

  • FontAwesome: Font Awesome gives you scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized — size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS.
  • Animate.CSS:  Just-add-water CSS animations. A cross-browser library of CSS animations. As easy to use as an easy thing.  Head to the Animate.CSS’ GitHub page and scroll down for instructions.
  • CodePen: search the pens for features that you would like to incorporate into your website, like slideshows.
  • jQuery UI: jQuery UI is a curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library. Whether you’re building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.
  • AniJS: A Library to Raise your Web Design without Coding
  • Bounce.js: Bounce.js is a tool and JS library that lets you create beautiful CSS3 powered animations.
  • Bootstrap:  Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web. Note: This will override or affect all of your existing CSS and style, including the code I provided you during Week 8.
