Flanagan continues, "The power of jQuery is summarized in its motto: 'Write less, do more.' This book has a motto, too, and you'll see it right on the front cover: 'Read less, learn more.' Be warned, though: my tech reviewer called the book 'relentless.' You'll learn something new on every page."
jQuery Pocket Reference explains everything you need to know about jQuery, completely and comprehensively. The 25-page quick reference summarizes the library, listing all jQuery methods and functions, with signatures and descriptions.
You'll learn how to:
- Select and manipulate document elements
- Alter document structure
- Handle and trigger events
- Create visual effects and animations
- Script HTTP with Ajax utilities
- Use jQuery's selectors and selection methods, utilities, plugins and more
"As someone who uses jQuery on a regular basis, it was surprising to discover how much of the library I'm not using. This book is indispensable for anyone who is serious about using jQuery for non-trivial applications."
—Raffaele Cecco, longtime developer of video games, including Cybernoid, Exolon, and Stormlord
