jQuery Spy

Category: Showcase

Remy Sharp wrote jQuery Spy, a jQuery version of the Digg spy that makes it easy for anyone to add the spy-like feature to their web site via AJAX (or rather AJAH).

The code allows you to customize:

  • Fading out lower items
  • custom duplicateion check
  • Custom timestamp function

You can see this in action at this football (soccer) site: Arsenal Spy

“ArseSpy” is a little bit of an unfortunate name seeing as “Arse” in England is the same as America’s “Ass”. – But.. ah well!! ;)

Under Safari that Aresenal page with the Activity Spy consumed a huge percentage of CPU time. This is a dual 2Ghz PPC, and that page alone had usage pegged well above 50%. I closed that page and it dropped into the teens.

It’s not actually the spy taking up the resource, it’s the sky ads that’s sitting on the arsenal web site. I get the same thing – but if you keep the ‘clean=1’ in the URL the ads stay away:
