11 Sep 15 jQuery Plugins to make smart sticky notes

It is now common to see certain elements in a site fixed to a position when you scroll up or down the site e.g. the navigation menu, the header or the sidebar. This allows for the element to be readily available regardless of the user’s position.

Called a sticky element, this can be achieved just by using CSS, however, using this method, the effect is not reliable across multiple browsers. That is why we’ve put together a handful of JS libraries and jQuery plugins to make smart sticky notes that will allow you to achieve this particular UX design with little to no hassle.

  1. Waypoints: Waypoints is a library to execute a function based on the element position in the viewport. It comes with an shortcut function that makes that element “sticky”. You can customize the scrolling direction — updown, and even right and left — as to which the element should stick within the viewport.
