Here are some things you can do with Gists in GistBox.
// Use Gists to store code you would like to remember later on
console.log(window); // log the "window" object to the console

Switch-style checkboxes.
* Switch-style checkboxes.
* Inspired by Espresso’s “Tools” switch
input[type="checkbox"]:checked { /* :checked here acting as a filter for older browsers */

Fullscreen an iframe of CNN _on_ and surf silently in Safari
jQuery('html').empty().html('<iframe src="" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;border:0"></iframe>');

micro-plugin that allows you to one-line callbacks and chain compose jQuery operations
/*define the function */
function use(method /*args*/){
return use.fn.init.apply({},[]);
/*define the underlying prototype*/
use.fn = use.prototype = {
init: function(initStack,oldstack){
$ = jQuery;
function hardWidth($el){
function hardSize($el){

Boilerplate example of how to "trap" tab events inside a modal so users can't tab to elements outside it while it's active
var keydownTabString = 'keydown.tabnamespace';//string of the custom event using a custom namespace
function getInputs($modalOuter){
return $modalOuter.find('select, input, textarea, button, a[href], [tabindex]').filter(':visible');
function switchTabFocusTarget($switchFocusTo, noshift){
return function(e){
if ((e.which === 9 && (noshift?!e.shiftKey:e.shiftKey))) {
function addOne(n){ return n+1; }
function logger(){ console.log.apply(console,arguments); return }
//Promise unit
function unit(n){ return $.Deferred().resolve(n); }
//make a simple function into a function that returns a Promise
function lift(fn){
function unit(x) {
return Promise.resolve(x);
function bind(input, f) {
return input.then(function(x){
return f(x);

Some functional javascript fun with promises and something sort of like Haskellish lenses
/*unit */
function resolve(x) {
return Promise.resolve(x);
function reject(x) {
return Promise.reject(x);
/*Some basic units: values wrapped in a Promise */
function resolve(x) {
return Promise.resolve(x);
function reject(x) {
return Promise.reject(x);
