The jQuery framework is part of nearly all the Visual Studio web project templates. This includes the readable version of the file (useful for debugging)
jquery.js and the minified version (for faster processing in production)
jquery-min.js. Recall from Chapter 17, “Building Modern Websites with ASP.NET 5” that these files are stored in the
bower_components folder of the ASP.NET 5 Web Site template and end up in the
wwwroot/lib/jquery folder. Chapter 17 also introduced Bower and the
bower.js file for including client scripts in your project. The ASP.NET 5 template uses this approach to include jQuery in the project.
