Marlon, a web designer from Peru, who is known on the web as Bedimcode, has created a stunning CSS- and JS-driven analog clock, with a light and a dark theme. Maybe a bit useless for a website, but wonderfully crafted and nice to look at. You can find a demo here.

Swiffy Slider

by DynamicWeb

Sliders and carousels are almost everywhere and there are many implementations out there, but this one from the team of DynamicWeb is a bit outstanding because of its features and application possibilities. Well done … espacially the well documentation. No questions left.

Floating UI

by Unknown

Whoever has created this solution, is hardly anything to add to their claim: “Floating UI is a low-level toolkit to create floating elements. Tooltips, popovers, dropdowns, menus, and more.”. and it is hardly anything to add to their feature list. Whenever something needs to float … use this library.

How To Build An Expandable Accessible Gallery

by Silvestar Bistrović 
https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2021/10/build-expandable-accessible-gallery/

Photo in galleries or other grid based collections should have the possibility to expand an item in order to see either the full photo or some details of the selected item. To avoid calling a detail page or something similar, Silvestar has developed a method to display this animated in fullscreen mode. Can’t wait to find a problem to check this out.

Omicron drag&drop

by Franek Boehlke 
https://github.com/mcFrax/omicron-dnd

What sounds like a variant of the Corona virus is a fast JavaScript drag-and-drop library for desktop and mobile browsers, made by Franek Boehlke. And this is no coincidence, but rather a pandemic project. It is lean, but has all basic features to nudge things around on your web app.

LetMeScroll

by Bruno Vieira 
https://bmsvieira.github.io/letmescroll.js/demo/index.html

Quite a while ago a have implemented a custom scrollbar on my own in a Web App and it wasn’t so funny as I thought. Lot of things to care about. If Bruno had already finished his project at that time, I could have saved myself the work. He brings a native scroll behaviour for desktop and mobile, easy customization and multiple callbacks in 465 lines of vanilla JS code. Great job, Bruno.
