Microsoft has released Glimmer, a tool that allows you to easily create interactive elements on your web pages by harnessing the power of the jQuery JavaScript library.

Without having to hand-craft your JavaScript code, you can use Glimmer’s wizards to generate jQuery scripts for common interactive scenarios. Glimmer also has an advanced mode, providing a design surface for creating jQuery effects based on your existing HTML and CSS.

You cand download it for free (as in open source) here.
