Stunning Examples of using JsFiddle

JsFiddle is an amazing tool that is accessible anywhere via a browser. It allows you to rapidly create demos, examples, bugs, and many other web-based applications and sites. I would imagine that many amazing new ways to use the web will have their start inside a “fiddle”. There are many other sites which have discussed jsFiddle, so I’ll let you explore those first if you like:

And we’re back. I hope you know now after reading a bit about this tool just how amazing it is. I will often fire up jsFiddle just to play around with some idea I have for YUI, or test out aspects of CSS3 animations. Many other amazing developers have also come up with some insanely great examples of using jsFiddle. Let’s go through a few:

I heard lots of feedback when I sent out the word to find some great examples of using jsFiddle. Many developers use it to play with ideas, try out some new technique, or to post examples for browser bugs in forums. One of the most empowering features of jsFiddle for me is that little “fork” button. Its like collecting baseball cards, only both you and I get a copy! You can dig into an example and figure out how it works on your own time, and even branch off of your own work to try out variations or enhancements. Myself I use it at least once a day to try out some idea or something. How do YOU use it? Do you have some amazing example of using jsFiddle that I’ve missed here? Please let me know in the comments so I can make this article better, and also highlight your hard work!
