jQuery Cookbook--New from O'Reilly: Solutions & Examples for jQuery Developers

Sebastopol, CA—jQuery simplifies building rich, interactive web frontends. Getting started with this JavaScript library is easy, but it can take years to fully realize its breadth and depth; this cookbook shortens the learning curve considerably. With these recipes, you'll learn patterns and practices from 19 leading developers who use jQuery for everything from integrating simple components into websites and applications to developing complex, high-performance user interfaces.

Ideal for newcomers and JavaScript veterans alike, jQuery Cookbook (O'Reilly, US $34.99), edited by Cody Lindley (@codylindley), starts with the basics and then moves to practical use cases with tested solutions to common web development hurdles. You also get recipes on advanced topics, such as methods for applying jQuery to large projects.

"jQuery is the most used JavaScript solution, of all JavaScript solutions, by a long shot. Having great material out there is important because jQuery usage is off the charts," says Lindley.

John Resig, Creator and Lead Developer of jQuery, says, "One of the best ways to expand your preconceived notion of what you can do with jQuery is to learn and use code from the jQuery plugin community...Personally I find a cookbook to be one of the best ways to challenge my preconceived notions of a language or library. I love seeing cases where an API that I thought I knew well is turned around and used in new and interesting ways."

With jQuery Cookbook, you will learn how to:

  • Solve problems involving events, effects, dimensions, forms, themes, and user interface elements
  • Learn how to enhance your forms, and how to position and reposition elements on a page
  • Make the most of jQuery's event management system, including custom events and custom event data
  • Create UI elements-such as tabs, accordions, and modals-from scratch
  • Optimize your code to eliminate bottlenecks and ensure peak performance
  • Learn how to test your jQuery applications
  • Apply the jQuery UI CSS framework and theming
