jQuery

jQuery is a new style library of JavaScript, created by John Resig in 2006 with a great motto: Write less, do more - Write less, do more.

Introducing jQuery

jQuery simplifies HTML transmission, event handling, animation and Ajax interaction. With jQuery, the Rapid Web Development concept is no longer strange.
jQuery is a set of JavaScript utility tools that simplify diverse tasks with less code writing. The following lists some of the most important features supported by jQuery:
  • Manipulating the DOM - jQuery makes it easy to select DOM elements to traverse (browse) as easily as using CSS, and edit their content by using the open source Selector media, which is called Sizzle .
  • Event handling - jQuery helps to interact with users better by handling diverse events without making HTML code messy with Event Handler.
  • AJAX support - jQuery helps you a lot to develop a feature-rich and responsive site using AJAX technology.
  • Effects - jQuery comes with a lot of beautiful and varied effects that you can use in your websites.
  • Compact - jQuery is a lightweight library - it is only about 19KB (gzipped).
  • Most supported by modern browsers - jQuery is supported mostly by modern browsers, and works well on IE 6.0+, FF 2.0+, Safari 3.0+, Chrome and Opera 9.0+.
  • Update and support the latest technologies - jQuery supports CSS3 Selector and basic XPath syntax.

How to use jQuery?

The most common way is to use Google Hosted Libraries , just insert the following code into the website:
<script src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js" > </script>
