jsLogger

A simple JS Logger with support to override and disable default javascript logging.

Conceived, developed and released the jQuery plugin which allows you to override the default JS console log.

On production servers, we generally try to avoid console.log statements. In real world scenarios code sometimes reaches the production servers with such lines of code. Browsers which do not support `console` implementations would then throw a silent error for the JS and stop further execution.

This plugin allows you to override such scenarios.

Used in production environments on Fab.com & Hem.com

bootModal

An extended modal for BootStrap 3, with support for callback hooks.

This plugin was created due to the common need for a javascript library to create, invoke and control bootstrap modals.

It is completely extendable and allows the programmer to capture various hooks.
