jQuery

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library. It makes things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, event handling, animation, and Ajax much simpler with an easy-to-use API that works across a multitude of browsers. With a combination of versatility and extensibility, jQuery has changed the way that millions of people write JavaScript.

 

Note that this is the API documentation for jQuery core. Other projects have API docs in other locations:

  • jQuery UI API docs :¬† jQuery UI is a curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library
  • jQuery Mobile API docs :¬† jQuery Mobile is the easiest way to build sites and apps that are accessible on all popular smartphone, tablet and desktop devices
  • QUnit API docs: QUnit is a powerful, easy-to-use JavaScript unit test suite. QUnit has no dependencies and works in all browsers.
