Backbone.Notifier is a powerful and flexible framework for displaying and controlling UI notifications.

It is built on top of jQuery, Backbone.js + Underscore.js and has many cool features like a 3D module or animations support.


The notifications can be displayed on the top or in the middle, modal notifications exist and it is possible to set custom styles via CSS + JS API.

Messages can be timed to be shown or hidden as wished, an integrated loader exists and there are pre-defined styles: default, info, error, warning and success.

X-Tag is a tiny JavaScript library for creating custom HTML elements which can have totally custom functionalities.

The library is based on the W3C Web Components draft and it is built/supported by Mozilla.


As an example, we can create an HTML element named "accordion" and, using JavaScript, customize it to convert its contents to an accordion. As a result, whenever we use <accordion></accordion>, the contents will be presented as an accordion.

The things that can be created with the library is totally up to our imagination (like a tabbox, tree, special input, slider, navigation, etc.).
