jQuery borderlayout

Todady I had a couple of spare hours so I wanted to try working on something about javascript and jQuery.

AFAIK jQuery and jQuery UI are missing a borderlayout, something like extjs’ one (check it out, it’s beautiful), so, after the jQuery UI 1.5 release, I thought to start creating one (thinking to P4A 3.2…).

The code is really early stage but it’s quite working cross-browser too, I did a quick screencast:

What do you think about this? Is someone interested in the project?

UPDATE: after some work the code is faster and bulletproof, take a look at it here:

Someone interested in having this code released as a jQuery plugin? Let me know. :-)

UPDATE 2: the project has been released, check it out!

    Hi Fabrizio,

    This is very nice and I’d love to see it in action. Do you have a demo? Also, feel free to post this on the jQuery & jQuery UI mailing lists as it’s something that people ask for frequently.

    @everybody: thank you and yes I’ll release it asap, just give me a few days cause i’ve been out of time with the release of another open source project :-)

    Fabrizio, this looks to be a great start, and I can easily imagine the jQuery community embracing this.

    Certainly some of the container properties of extjs will help. That’s where most of the value is.

    I’m subscribing to your RSS feed to keep informed about progress….
