What is Blueberry?
Blueberry is an experimental opensource jQuery image slider plugin which has been written specifically to work with fluid/responsive web layouts.
A brief history
With the popularity of smart phones and tablet devices responsive/fluid web layouts have become an important part of modern web design.
Working on a new project I decided to use the 1140px grid from cssgrid.net. The design I was working on included a large image slider on the front page. As I set about choosing a jQuery plugin to use, I started to realise that very few are compatible with responsive/flexible layouts (at least not without some hacking) as most require a fixed width.
So, I decided to start writing a basic plugin with the aim of making it suitable for responsive web design.
The hope is that I can at least nudge developers of more popular slider plugins to think about responsive web design, and make their plugins compatible.
In the mean time, I aim to continue to develop this plugin (time permitting), squashing some of the bugs and implementing more advanced features.
