Using jQuery (or prototype or whatever) is a standard tool in my tool belt nowadays. It’s so useful I can’t think how I’d do without. You can make some pretty nifty user interfaces with it. And not just pretty ones, but useful ones to.
Take our latest project for example, on the front page (and sub pages also) there is a list of TV stations and it’s current program (2 or 3 items per station). And some of those programs have extra description:
Now the old fashion way would be to click on a program which would then take you to another page where you could read the description. The jQuery way is to show the description immediately and with some style! So after clicking on the first program, for example, the description would slide down beneath it, thous saving user the time of a new request and the time it would take him to get back to the schedule:
Now you use jQuery to dynamically add a onClick event handler, to every link, which slides the description and returns false, so that the browser doesn’t follow the link. Feel free to view the source code of spored.tv to see how I’ve done this.

This was the biggest project yet. It is a on-line newspaper that was started by a famous journalist Bojan Požar. The page was made in one month and there ware a lot of all night work session. The design was made by hercogmartini and was transformed to HTML by Jure Mali and is running on my framework with PHP and MySQL as backend.
I made a tiny framework for this page that my co-worker designed at K&S Consulting d.o.o.
This is a portfolio of my ex-girlfriend. The design was done by Gašper Volkar and was later fixed a little by Miloš Sluga, jr.
I have used my NFUcms, but I have extended it and I have coded many new extensions. My CMS has become quite powerful now. This was a nice project and I enjoyed working on it.
This was a small project so I used my NFUcms that was used at zgradi-si.com. Actually the customer was the same. I really didn’t have much work with this page, wich is a proof of how great my CMS is :).
Many scripts dealing with calculating various things (rent, paycheck, …) and a massive search engine for searching articles.
