Great software speaks for itself.

Introducing reticle.js

originally written April 23, 2012

One of my client’s projects (to be announced soon enough) will be embeddable on any website, so I’ve had fun building a mini-sdk loader that can initialize the embedded content in as few lines as possible. Lucky for me and page loading visuals, all of the content is contained directly within a modal window, but I needed a framework agnostic way to show this modal due to the universal nature of embeddable content.

After spending some time trying to dig through the multitude of javascript libraries, I figured it was quicker to write one myself.

Thus, reticle.js was born.

Designed for simplicity, reticle.js just provides some CSS, a way to turn any <div> into modal content, and some helper functions for showing/hiding/binding the modal.

Still a work in progress, check it out on github.
