Why to use jQuery?
Cross browser support
Easy Dom traversing
Tested, commonly used and documented
In order to answer this question we have to understand
- What is mean by Application and what is mean by Library?
- How to create Libraries
What is mean by Application and what is mean by Library?
Live examples for applications are facebook.com, Microsoft office, visual studio, an inventory management system etc. Application caters end user requirements. For creating such application we use some already created libraries and achieve quick development, surety of proper working (because libraries will be pre-tested and proven).
How we create library?
We start with some tools like Visual studio where we will write some code using some programming languages like C# or Vb.net and then we call it as library
- If we can call that code block as self-contained code block,
- If we can use the code written there in more than one application without repeating a single line of redundant code,
- If it is nor self-executable.
It’s a very good question why should we use jQuery and not something else?
- Its lightweight - jQuery is a lightweight library and because of its lightweight characteristics it provideshighperformance, it’s a very well written code which is about 32 kb size
- Easy Dom traversing - With the help of jQuery we can find parent or child of any HTML element at any timewithout writing much code.
- Easy Plugins -jQuery is highlyextensible. It let you extend the existing behavior and even you can easily add new behaviors. You can easily find huge plugins over internet.
- Tested, commonly used and documented – Because of huge popularitynot only you can get answers for most of the jQuery questions easily in forums but also availability of huge documentation makes learning jQuery very easy.
