Simply put truncatable is a lightweight truncation plugin for jQuery. Designed for users who want to be able to hide and expand text on a page. This plugin is very SEO friendly, and ideal for environments where it is not possible to use PHP.

I'd like to recommend the Any+Time(TM) library for improved Date/Time selection. Adding a single line of JavaScript to your page makes it easy for a user to select a valid date and/or time with just a few mouse clicks--faster and easier than any other calendar widget I've seen. The current version supports jQuery and a legacy version for prototype.js is still available. Learn more at http://www.ama3.com/anytime/

It's very powerful and flexible, but easy. I recommend!
