Through my subscription to John Resig’s RSS feed (he created jQuery) I have noticed a flurry of activity over the past several weeks.

I’ve been burdened with a ton of projects I’ve been putting finishing touches on and so I haven’t had time until now to post about all the new plugins and great contributions to jQuery.

First, you shoud make yourself familiar with jQuery’s development page. This is where John is linking to the Best of the Best jQuery plugins.

Some of My Favorites

Farbtastic color picker – awesome. It’s tough to choose between this one and one I’ve seen on Yahoo’s site for use with their YUI.

Table sorting plugin

Date picker – another addition by Kelvin Luck. Great job.

Suckerfish Menus – and also a very slick “tree” that can be collapsed and expanded
