Sukkot

SukkotDuring Sukkot we enrich our local Jewish community by forming new relationships with other families and strengthening the existing friendships we have with others in our synagogue.  We do this by inviting other Jews to join us in fulfilling the mitzvah (commandment) of building a sukkah (hut)—especially those who, for various reasons, may not otherwise have the opportunity to build their own sukkah.  We reach out to members of our Jewish community who we know well, and who we don’t know as well.  We strengthen relationships within our Jewish community when we join together to decorate the sukkot (huts) of our friends and neighbors, and especially when we share in the bounty of the season in festive meals housed in our sukkot. 

Spotlight

The Widgetkit Spotlight allows you to add an overlay to your images which fades or moves in on mouse hover. The overlay can be an image or HTML content. The default magnifier spotlight is a perfect match to be used with a lightbox.

Features

  • Create nicely animated image overlays
  • Supports custom image or HTML content overlays
  • 5 different animation modes
  • Build on the latest jQuery version
  • Works with Joomla 1.5, 1.6, WordPress and Stand-alone

Examples

If no custom overlay is set the default spotlight fades in an overlay with an magnifier image. If you define a custom overlay you can choose between different animations - fade, bottom, top, right and left.

How To Use

Use the HTML5 custom data attribute data-spotlight to activate the spotlight.

<a data-spotlight="on" href="/mypage.html">
	<img src="/image.jpg" width="180" height="120" alt="" />
</a>

To create a custom overlay use a div element with the CSS class overlay. You can set the effect parameter to the data attribute. For example:

<a data-spotlight="effect:bottom;" href="/mypage.html">
	<img src="/image.jpg" width="180" height="120" alt="" />
	<div class="overlay">Custom Overlay</div>
</a>

You can set the effect parameter to fade, bottom, top, right and left.

Media Player

The Widgetkit Media Player is a HTML5 audio and video player completely built HTML and CSS. You can easily embed video files into your website by using the HTML5 video element. A Flash player fallback is included for all unsupported browsers.

Features

  • Native playback for modern HTML5 browsers
  • Completely built with HTML and CSS
  • Same UI in all browsers
  • Create our own skins
  • Flash player fallback for unsupported browsers
  • Works with Joomla 1.5, 1.6, WordPress and Stand-alone

Examples

This is a MP3 Audio Sample:

How To Use

Use the HTML5 video element to embed video in your website. For example:

<video src="/video.mp4" width="320" height="240"></video>

You can also provide multiple sources, to add support for the different video formats like h.264, WebM or Ogg:

<video width="320" height="240">
	<source type="video/mp4"  src="/video.mp4" />
	<source type="video/webm" src="/video.webm" />
	<source type="video/ogg"  src="/video.ogv" />
</video>

Use the HTML5 audio element to embed MP3 files in your website. For example:

<audio src="/audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3"></audio>

Twitter

The Widgetkit Twitter module is the neatest way to display tweets directly on your website. All displayed tweets get cached so they show up super fast, even if Twitter is not available.

Features

  • Filter tweets by hashtags, words, from users, to users, referencing users
  • Block tweets using a blacklist
  • Tweets are cached for high performance
  • Tweets show up even if Twitter is not available
  • 3 different styles to show your tweets
  • Build with HTML5 using article and time elements
  • Works with Joomla 1.5, 1.6 and WordPress

How To Use

Create a Twitter module in Joomla or a Twitter widget in WordPress and publish it in a module position. A lot of options are available to choose which tweets you want to show.

For example you can show only tweets from a specific user or tweets that contain a certain hash-tag or a specific word. All options can be combined. To filter by more than one word or user use a space between them. For example: yootheme joomla.
