If I want to design/theme/grid my entire site, and not just a widget, could I use jQuery UI? I know Blueprint CSS is intended to do this. But I don't know if jQuery UI is only meant for jQuery plugins/widgets. So is jQuery UI a direct competitor to Blueprint CSS (and other CSS frameworks)? Thoughts please?
I use BluePrint CSS and jQuery-UI together without any incontrovertible issues. The only and rare source of impedance appears to be when the jQuery-UI CSS, or some of the related "fg-" classes from the Filament Group's otherwise excellent demos, add margins to widgets and controls. In this case, as in all cases with BluePrint, keep the unrelated specs in separate DIVs. Like this: <div class="span-5"> <!-- The BluePrint columnar container --> <div class="My-ui-widget"> <!-- Your jQuery-UI widget --> .... </div> </div> Don't combine those two DIVs because this can lead to rendering problems, especially in IE 6. **--** Steve
Very interesting. So, to take my original question a step further.. YUI Grids CSS is one alternative with BluePrint CSS. and jQuery UI is one alternative to what framework? I'd like to be able to see a direct comparison between similar frameworks before I feel confident on choosing one. Thank you for your time!
jQuery UI provides components & effects for jQuery similar to what: <ul><li>Scriptaculous provides for Prototype. </li><li>YUI components provides to YUI</li><li>Dijit provides to Dojo</li></ul>The CSS framework included in jQuery UI is meant to help in providing easy theming capabilities for jQuery UI components or plugins that use the CSS API defined in the UI docs.
