Last month developers were busy with jQuery and it is time to go through some of the most popular jQuery plugins they created in January 2012.

1. Scrollorama

The jQuery plugin for doing cool scrolly things. Basically, it lets you animate elements on the page based on the browser window’s scroll position.

2. Arctext.js

While CSS3 allows us to rotate letters, it is quite complicated to arrange each letter along a curved path. Arctext.js is a jQuery plugin that let's you do exactly that. Based on Lettering.js, it calculates the right rotation of each letter and distributes the letters equally across the imaginary arc of the given radius.

3. TextExt

A super awesome, customizable text input supporting tags, autocomplete, ajax and other goodness in a crazy cool a-la cart way.

4. jmpress.js

A jQuery port of impress.js based on the power of CSS3 transforms and transitions in modern browsers and inspired by the idea behind
Only the latest Chrome, Safari and Firefox 10 supports this engine, but should support all browsers in the future.

5. Promptumenu

A jQuery plugin that allows you to display list items in a similar way like a iPhone home screen. If item count exceeds the displayed items on one screen, users can swipe through screens.

6. Stellar.js

Stellar.js is a jQuery plugin that provides parallax scrolling effects to any scrolling element.

7. Scrolldeck.js

A jQuery plugin for making scrolling presentation decks, It uses Scrollorama and keyboard listening to manage the slide transitions

8. slabText

the script splits headlines into rows before resizing each row to fill the available horizontal space. The ideal number of characters to set on each row is calculated by dividing the available width by the CSS font-size – the script then uses this ideal character count to split the headline into word combinations that are displayed as separate rows of text.
