Kraken gets callouts, alerts, and more

Kraken got a few updates over the weekend, including several new add-ons.

New Add-Ons #

  1. Hero. Simple callout boxes and background colors.
  2. Alerts. Basic alert messages.
  3. Social Sharing, social links and buttons without the bloat.

Updates #

  1. By request, dropdown menus now close when you click outside of them.
  2. Houdini collapse-and-expand widgets got a subtle fade-in effect.
  3. All jQuery add-ons got updated for noConflict compatability. If you’re using them with another scripting language that also uses $ as a shorthand, just add jQuery.noConflict(); to your JavaScript file.

🚀 I just relaunched my Vanilla JS Pocket Guides with new code examples and real projects to help tie everything you’ll learn together. Check it out.
