Implementing touch events with JavaScript plugins

There are some important JavaScript extensions and plugins that allow us to integrate touch gestures into our responsive website, improving the user interaction experience. Some examples are QuoJS and Hammer.

QuoJS – simple touch interaction library

It is a micro, modular, object-oriented, and concise JavaScript library that simplifies the HTML document traversing, event handling, and Ajax interactions for rapid mobile web development.

Note that QuoJS does not require jQuery for its working; however, it is a simple and good plugin.

This lightweight plugin, with 5-6 KB when gzipped, allows us to have powerful writing, flexibility, and adapted code. You will find the downloadable files at https://github.com/soyjavi/QuoJS ...
