This used to be useful, jQuery resize event, in doing things like,

$(selector).on('resize', function() { .. });

but it has not been updated for a long time (last commit since 2010), and it doesn't quite work well in certain situations (it is for jQuery 1.4)

Is there an updated alternative for doing the above?

  • How updated do you need it to be? (What jQuery version and/or last commit since x)?

Jquery Mutate is a plugin that should work. It's a bit more general purpose and fires events whenever the selection is mutated in any way.

If that doesn't work, this SO question might be able to help. Lots of useful answers there.
