jQuery Reading Assignment

  1. *What is jQuery? A JavaScript library
  2. *How does it help us as developers? It makes the process of creating powerful JavaScript websites quicker and easier with fewer lines of code.
  3. *Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? Uncompressed is to be used for development as it contains all the comments (useful for debug) while the minified is for deployment; much lighter in size and faster to download.
  1. The biggest javascript library.
  2. It helps us add complex functionality from code which has been previously written by someone else. It saves us reinventing the wheel.
  3. Minified is a smaller file, quicker to load, so it’s better for web apps etc. It has all white space, comments etc removed. Uncompressed is easier for us to work with but is a bigger file.

1.jQuery is a reference library which is attached to the file or code we are working on and is a compressed version of JavaScript

2 jQuery assists program writers due to its higher functionality than just JavaScript almost like a turbo supercharge

3.The two versions are jQuery uncompressed .js is easier to use as a program but take up more memory and jQuery minified .js less visually clear, but quick to load for the user of the site

  1. jQuery is JavaScript code library to write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code.
  2. Easy to implement UI design and cross browser code so a developer can focus on his actual task.
  3. One to implement (minified 23kb) and one to understand what’s happening (reference), because the uncompressed version is easier to read.
  1. jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps
  2. with jQuery you can write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code
  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a popular javascript library that wraps and provides an interface many useful functions.

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    It exposes many popular and reusable functions to enable developers to create web pages
    more quickly and easily. Some of the built-in functionality it provides includes
    animated effects for elements; Ajax requests; and manipulating the DOM.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    The uncompressed version has the original human readable structure and is about 160kb in
    size. The minified version has all the comments, whitespaces and other unnecessary
    characters removed in order to reduce its size to 23kb. Although this makes it difficult
    to read, it does make it quicker to download.

  1. ***What is jQuery? jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.
  2. ***How does it help us as developers? You can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.
  3. ***Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? Minified is code without all of the comments white spaces and unnecessary characters. (23kb). Uncompressed is easy to read and modify but the size is around 160kb

(1) jQuery is a JavaScript library. It is a single .js file that developers can link to in their program, and which contains ready-made functions. Developers can then invoke these functions within their program code in order to build dynamic and interactive websites and web apps with powerful functionality.

(2) jQuery enables developers to write complex code more quickly, easily and succinctly. It also deals with browser incompatibility issues so that developers don’t have to concern themselves with this.

In terms of building a dynamic and interactive experience for the user, jQuery also helps developers to:

  • manipulate the DOM;
  • animate elements by fading or sliding them in/out, or by expanding/contracting them;
  • implement drag-and-drop functionality for re-ordering and moving elements;
  • implement client-side form validation;
  • make Ajax requests for additional data from the server, without the web page having to be reloaded e.g. autocompletion of forms;
  • create high-quality slideshows and dropdown menus.

(3) The uncompressed version of jQuery is for use during development, because it includes comments, and is easier to read and modify.
The minified version is much more compact, because the comments, whitespace and certain characters have been removed. The completed product should link to this version because it can be downloaded much more quickly by the user.

  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a JavaScript library

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    jQuery provides alternative syntax and built in functions that are very easy to use.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

Uncompressed is designed to be human readable. Minified is designed for browser performance removing unnecessary characters.

  1. What is jQuery?

A collection of code that vastly reduces the amount of code you have to use. They are pre-written. There are many different functions of code you can borrow.

  1. How does it help us as developers?

It can save enormous amounts of time when borrowing code that is error free. Instead of trying to type it by trial and error and learning how to do it yourself.

  1. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

Less space = less storage space and less computational power needed

  1. jQuery is one of the most popular Javascript libraries and makes it quicker and easier to build Javascript webpages and apps.
  2. jQuery allows programmers to reuse Javascript code that is already written, which makes programming faster, easier, and less error prone.
  3. The uncompressed version of jQuery is easy to read and modify. The minified version is smaller and faster to download, so it’s better for visitors to download.

   A library with help function to easy build a javascript web page
   
2. How does it help us as developers?
   To save time and don’t invent the weal again, same functions are used by other developers
3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
   Uncompressed is more easier to understand under the development phase. And the minified version are without withspaces and are smaller in size, and loads much quicker for a user in real time.
  1. What is jQuery? jQuery is a JavaScript Library which allows apps to be developed quicker and easier using significantly less lines of code.
  2. How does it help us as developers? jQuery allows for great functionality like animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements. Additionally it easier to code for browser cross-compatibility with jQuery.
  3. Why do we have 2 versions of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? The minified version is more compact in size at 23kb making it a more practical choice for real world application. The uncompressed version is more easy to read and modify however at the cost of being a much larger file at 160kb.

1.What is jQuery?
jQuery id free javaScript library.

2.How does it help us as developers?
Accomplishing things with 1,2 lines of code, which will take us 15-20 lines of code.

3.Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Minifield version is the compressed version which is loading fast on our website, uncompressed version is the readable one and is way bigger (in kb`s) than the minifield.

  1. It’s the most popular Javascript library.
  2. It lets Javascript apps operate across different browsers. Developers can save time writing apps for animation and other functions by using it.
  3. Uncompressed is the larger version and easy to modify. Minified takes out some unnecessary characters to cut the file size down by a lot. It’s the recommended one to use when developing on a website.

1: a libary of Js code, ready to use…
2: don’t need to reinvent, its fast and reliable
3: uncompressed: with explanations, nice structured for the human mind. the compressed one to use in the website itself.

  1. jQuery is a JavaScript library.
  2. jQuery helps lessen the code written by developers by reusing working JavaScript code.
  3. jQuery- minefield and uncompressed are functionally the same, however minefield is a compressed version that gets rid of unnecessary code such as white space and comments. The advantage is that clients can easily download it through the browser since its file size is smaller. The disadvantage is that it not easily readable.

We can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.

  1. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify, but it’s heavier in size than the other version of JQuery.

The minified .js file has all the unnecessary characters removed from the file, that is why this version is lighter than the former one. Although you can’t easily read the code, it’s much quicker for visitors to download.
