2 months day for day after the first release of plugin nyroModal, it's time to make a first overview.
Let's start with some numbers:
- Visits: 28 800
- Unique Visitors: 23 660
- Pages viewed: 26 039
- 11 Releases (the 1.2.7 just came out)
- 2 859 download (and more made directly in the jQuery plugin page where there is no stats available)
The problem with this kind of script, you never know where it's used. I can't make a long list here.
- Tripkick: No glory here, I developed this website during my internship in Fluidesign
- Wedding website of Brock and Kristina: integrated by my colleague, I help him to correctly place the button. PJ spoke about it here
- Sling Media (Screenshot tab)
- Right here, for the pictures
And maybe elsewhere that I didn't hear about... If you're using it (or saw it somewhere), don't hesitate to write a quick comment here.
This is the first open-source script I did. And the experience is great, regarding the numbers shown aboce, and the quotes below. More than 2000 visits the second day after the first release. I didn't thought it could be so much in this time. Then the numbers calmed down to around 300 daily visits (less during the weekend).
I had a proposal from the New-York Times to integrate my script in a future website. But I didn't get any news...
What the people said:
Nice job, trying it on a site and so far works great.
I dig your scripts - I like this clean & correct code ;) Great work! Thanks for your nice work. Best wishes!
Oui félicitations ce plugin m'a l'air très bien, bonne doc, ça fait en plus plaisir de voir des français à l'oeuvre! Bonne continuation.
At this point i must congratulate and thank you for what i'd call the best modal plug-in for jquery EVER!!
C. Spenser Beggs (New-York Times):
I have been looking for an elegant modal box script and think that nyroModal is one of the best I have seen.
Thank you, and keep creating great scripts. Your contributions keep us newbies inspired.
A guy after reporting a bug:
Great! And thank you for a great plugin - it's been a real time saver! :)
