UIZE JavaScript API, is a suite of code libraries to help you create more effective user interfaces in your Web content and Web-based applications and services. The UIZE project was started in April 2005 and is a work in progress.

The UIZE JavaScript API has been designed making full use of the object orientation features of the JavaScript language. The APIs of the various modules have been carefully thought out so that they are comprehensive, sensible and consistent.

There are some nice widgets here - a table, a set of dropdowns to select a value from a tree, a slideshow, and a slider (with a nice color selector demo). What's really neat, though, from an eye candy perspective, is the "Wipe" effects - visual transitions from one image to another. The mostly involve opening up the new content in different places at the same time. e.g. "Blinds" open up several vertical lines atr once, "Matrix" opens up several rectangular blocks at once, and different timing is used to produce a number of distinct effects.
