Just jQuery: The Core UI (I/O Press)
Monday, 06 March 2017

jQuery has developed from its original intent as a way to smooth over the differences in the way browsers interact with JavaScript, into a much more powerful tool that fully lives up to its motto of "write less, do more". As a result jQuery is compact and can seem cryptic until you get used its common idioms. Written for JavaScript developers working with web page layout, Ian Elliot's book enables you to use jQuery easily and efficiently. It also cuts through its seeming complexity, by presenting enough explanation at every stage for you to understand what is happening.

After outlining what jQuery is, how to obtain it and why you should use it, early chapters deal with the essential jQuery - its selectors, filters and DOM traversal functions.

The following chapters look at how to modify existing HTML elements and how to create completely new elements, before going on to more advanced aspects of the UI - storing data and working with forms.

jQuery also provides simple animation functions and to understand these there are chapters on function queues and asychronous animation. Adding custom elements, both to the jQuery UI and to jQuery itself, is the next major topic. The book closes with an explanation of how jQuery's unit testing package, QUnit, lets you write tests to make sure that your JavaScript code works and continues to work.
