Juke: Updates

I’ve been working on Juke, and it’s coming along nicely. Myself, I really like the iTunes Store feature. I’d appreciate it if you try it out and let me know how it works for you.


  • Juke will automatically try to find and present a localized iTunes Store link to the currently playing track. I’m proud of this, I’ve wanted to implement it for a long time and it works pretty well from my testing.
  • Juke handles window resizing much more elegantly and will stretch to fill a container.
  • No more hover events in order to be more touch-friendly.
  • Juke loads the SoundManager 2 library itself in order to prevent issues in IE, which also makes it more straightforward to call on your page.
  • The tracklist JSON can have track markers formatted in mm:ss instead of raw seconds.
  • The #juke element is hidden until everything is loaded to prevent large page reflows.

Note for other users of SM2: If you’re getting ambiguous JavaScript bugs in IE and are loading things asynchronously, try the deferred loading feature.
