This utility works extremely well in Agile environments where there is design work done upfront. I use it extensively and clients really appreciate the ability to see what's done and not done in a new application.
In this update:
- improved namespacing - no more collisions. To update, your function calls must be of the form $.under_construction.<function name>
- improved opacity - Due to some functions that were recently made available in the latest versions of jQuery, I was able to restructure the overlay so you get a cleaner look over darker backgrounds.
See the demo for more details.
In the future, I'm hoping to add iteration/sprint labels to the overlays so the client or stakeholder can see at what point the feature is going to be built.
