jquery.collapsiblePanel: A collapsable panel plugin for jQuery

I’m pleased to announce my first open source jquery plugin, collapsiblePanel.

Basically, this plugin surrounds a given html element with a box and places a title bar on top. Clicking on the title bar will toggle between expanding and collapsing the element.

My main motivation for creating this plugin is to for the tangential lessons I will learn. Some of the tangential lessons I am learning as a result of this:

  1. How do you use the google closure compiler?
  2. How do you use git, and github specifically.
  3. How do you automate the release build process for a static html website. This means automatically renaming the javascript file with the version number, compressing it, and creating a git branch.
  4. Whats is a good javascript editor? Right now I’m liking komodo edit.
  5. Can I use javascript and svg to create animated graphics?

The plan is to blog as I learn, sharing my experiences with you all.
