Now JQuery is such a platform that makes it possible for a web developer to perform a task smoothly on HTML elements with minimum lines of code. Although it may not be the first choice for 3-D but it definitely turns out to be the much better alternative to Flash. Here is a post that incorporates some of my favorite panorama display images but before we go through the plugins, take a look at these JQuery development tips worth considering.
- Choose a plugin that works out of the box for you-While working with JQuery plugin, one must always keep a default mode that works just out of the box. By doing this, chances are there that people will pass on your plugin and keep looking for others. Hence, it becomes easy for developers to tweak necessary options later on.
- Test your code in all browsers-The step seems to be easier said than done. With a little extra time and effort, a JQuery developer can either make or break the plugin. Many times a developer fails to find a bug in your code but sooner or later a user will definitely find one. In order to avoid such circumstances, make sure you run a quick test in all browsers and sort out the last minute issues.
With Panorama Image Display Plugins mentioned below, let your visitors enjoy the 360-degree view of your website image by integrating these JQuery panorama image display plugins.
Threesixtyslider- The jQuery plugin is used to create a 360-degree image using jQuery. It may quite interest you to know that the plugin supports almost all major browsers (including IE6) and is fully responsive!
The plugin is available with a SpriteSpin library which provides similar kind of functionality through which a user can fully rotate an image. This feature, in particular, is effective when displaying images on an e-commerce website where a 360-degree view is beneficial. For better configuration, the 360slider offers a handful of options in regards to height, width to playspeed and disablespin.
Paver- Most of the JQuery developers in India use this plugin to make panoramic and widescreen images for their end users. The creator of Paver, Terry Mun was mesmerized by the iPhone’s ability to capture panoramic images. And this is how paver came into existence with a feature that ensures images are rendered correctly. Moreover, paver focuses on providing compatible aspect ratios across devices so that the images will render as they should be.
Sprite spin- The JQuery plugin creates animations from a directory of images or a stitched sprite-sheet. The moment the animation is created, it automatically loops frame by frame like a flip book. Like any other 360 degree plugins, Sprite spin even aims to provide a 360-degree view to its end users. In fact, it takes a step further by offering a handful of features which eventually allows the developer to customize the behavior and presentation of the animations.
