jQuery UI Touch Punch

Touch Event Support for jQuery UI


Tested on iPad, iPhone, Android and other touch-enabled mobile devices.






jQuery UI Touch Punch is a small hack that enables the use of touch events on sites using the jQuery UI user interface library.

Currently, jQuery UI user interface library does not support the use of touch events in their widgets and interactions. This means that the slick UI you designed and tested in your desktop browser will fail on most, if not all, touch-enabled mobile devices, becuase jQuery UI listens to mouse events—mouseover, mousemove and mouseout—not touch events—touchstart, touchmove and touchend.

That's where jQuery UI Touch Punch comes in. Touch Punch works by using simulated events to map touch events to their mouse event analogs. Simply include the script on your page and your touch events will be turned into their corresponding mouse events to which jQuery UI will respond as expected.

As I said, Touch Punch is a hack. It duck punches some of jQuery UI's core functionality to handle the mapping of touch events. Touch Punch works with all basic implementations of jQuery UI's interactions and widgets. However, you may find more complex cases where Touch Punch fails. If so, scroll down to learn how you can file and/or fix issues.

Download the Code

The jQuery UI Touch Punch plugin is available in two versions:

* minified & gzip'd



Using Touch Punch is as easy as 1, 2…

Just follow these simple steps to enable touch events in your jQuery UI app:

  1. Include jQuery and jQuery UI on your page.

    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.2.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.8.21/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
  2. Include Touch Punch after jQuery UI and before its first use.

    Please note that if you are using jQuery UI's components, Touch Punch must be included after jquery.ui.mouse.js, as Touch Punch modifies its behavior.

    <script src="jquery.ui.touch-punch.min.js"></script>
  3. There is no 3. Just use jQuery UI as expected and watch it work at the touch of a finger.

Top 10 Cool JavaScript Framework for Mobile touch screen platforms





The demand for mobile app development has shot up in recent years. This is owing to the emergence of myriads of smart phones and tablets that people are using for web access. A lot of such devices are touch screen based and that explains why mobile app developers are resorting to applications and frameworks that enable touch based mobile app creation simpler. However, this is not exactly a cakewalk and given the fact developers need to stay updated with prevalent trends and user needs, it can take a toll on creativity.

Mobile app and website development is done using JavaScript most of the times. This is because of the fact it is compatible with major OS and platforms and does not require complex coding. For a mobile developer it is important to know widely used and effective JavaScript frameworks that can be used to develop versatile apps and cutting edge responsive mobile websites.

Hammer.js is a widely used light framework which offers support for popular touch screen gestures like pinch. Drag, swipe, double tap and rotate. It can be used in mobile OS environments including BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile and iOS.

FastClick is a useful library that eliminates the usual 300ms delay existing between a finger tap and initiation of a click event in all mobile browsers. As a result, users get an experience of speedier web browsing on their devices. It offers support for mobile web browsers like Mobile Safari, Chrome, Android Browser and Opera Mobile.

jQueryUI is ideal for those developers who deal with apps built on jQuery JS Library for themes, widget, interaction and visual effect creation. With this framework you can make interactive online mobile apps within short time span.

Swipe is a very useful touch slider, which supports swiping and offers fast response. It has hardly any alternative.

JQUERY.PEP.JS is a plug-in with small footprint that enables kinetic-dragging in desktop and mobiles. It makes use of animate functions of jQuery and CSS animations to allow users add kinetic drag functionality in HTML5 enabled devices. It also has support for stopping, starting and dragging events.

FooTable is a capable jQuery plug-in that is used to make HTML tables on handled devices like tablets and touch screen based smart phones. It allows developers to make the tables appear neat no matter how much data is put in the columns. With this framework, you can convert HTML tables in responsive and expandable tables.

Quo JS i
Quo JS is a JaveScript library that enables developers to pass through HTML documents, deal with Ajax interactions and handle events for efficient mobile web development. With this library, you can generate cross-browser code easily.

TinyNav.js is a small sized jQuery plug-in that enables changing <ol> and <ul> navigations to select dropdowns in small screen devices.

Pointer.js is ideal if you want to unify mouse and touch based events. This is essential because lots of mainstream computers are going to be driven by touch inputs in near future.

Jo enables developers to create web apps as well as native mobile apps with same coding. This can prove to be a real timesaver. It runs on Chrome OS, BlackBerry, Android and iOS. It is Open Source and requires no usage or licensing cost. This framework has UI elements like web form widget and popup widget. The former can be used to make log in screens and the latter is useful for offering users extra information when they click any interface element.

These are the major touch screen specific JavaScript frameworks developers can benefit from. However, there are other popular apps like Sencha Touch that you can try.
