Visually Connect Elements on a Web Page: jsPlumb jQuery Plugin

Posted on March 25, 2010, under jQuery 

jsPlumb is a jQuery plugin that provides a way to “plumb” elements of a UI together. It is much the same way you may have seen on Yahoo Pipes. It uses Canvas in modern browsers and Google’s ExplorerCanvas script for stone-age browsers.

The plugin relies on jQuery 1.3.x or jQuery 1.4.x (tested on 1.3.2 and 1.4.2), and also jQuery UI 1.7.2 (if you want to support dragging). Full transparent support for jQuery dragging is included, the API is super simple, and the compressed version of the script is just 11K.
