Description

With the jQuery UI library, you can apply the power and standards of jQuery to user interface design, complete with interactive elements, animation, and themeable widgets. This concise, code-heavy guide demonstrates how to harness interactive features that HTML5 lacks, including tabs, accordions, and dialog boxes. You’ll also learn how to program common but complex tasks, such as managing drag and drop and autocomplete, that make it easier for users to interact with your site.

Mr. Sarrion’s writing is concise, sober, and friendly, but never familiar. He doesn’t dig into years of Javascript history, because it doesn’t matter. He does, however, discuss just about every conceivable angle of the book’s subject, to the point that I found myself wondering why O’Reilly didn’t offer this book as part of its ‘Cookbook’ line. Maybe it was the methodical method of the author’s writing, which focuses on building on the previously discussed topic rather than flipping to a recipe for a specific issue to find a quick fix. Ultimately the format is good; by the end of the book, the reader will have a comprehensive understanding of the subject. Full Review  >

Eric Sarrion’s jQuery UI (published by O’Reilly) is a beginner-to-intermediate level overview of the jQuery UI library and its widgets. If you are a JavaScript novice, or else are new to jQuery or its UI library, then Sarrion’s book is good for getting up and running fast. Full Review  >
