jQuery Reading Assignment


#21

jQuery is a javaScript library written in a single javaScript file and helps developers by providing them with abstraction that simplifies their code. The minified version is for using and the uncompressed has comments so that a developer can modify it and understand what it does.


#22
  1. jQuery is the most well known free javascript library.
  2. It helps developers to build webpages and web apps more quickly and easy.
  3. The uncompressed file is easy to read and modify, but larger in size. The minified version is more difficult to read but quicker for visitors to download and thereby recommend to put on your site.

#23
  1. jQuery is a free JavaScript library which provide a rich functionality for animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements.

  2. Developers can reference jQuery in there web pages to use the required functionality without coding it themselves.

  3. Uncompressed version has comments and white space and has been formatted to easy to read. But it is about 160kb. But the minified version does not have formmating and comments so it is about 23kb and quicker to load.

1. What is jQuery?
jQuery is one of the most popular JavaScript library in use today. In the past it was the most popular but has been recently supplanted by React.
2. How does it help us as developers?
It makes it quicker and easier to build Javascript webpages and web apps.
3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The uncompressed version is easier to read and modify, but the minified one is better for speeding up page loading.


#25

1. What is jQuery?
This is a library containing JS code.

2. How does it help us as developers?
It is publicly available so that programmers can build programs faster by reusing the code of others.

3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The uncompressed version contains comments and spaces making it easy to read and understand. The minified version omits these extra characters and is able to load faster on websites.


#26

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a library that allow us to write less code, it has an API to work with a variety of things like DOM, AJAX…

How does it help us as developers?

It help us by allowing us to write less code

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

Minified is for production and uncompressed is for development


#27
  1. jQuery is a free JavaScript library.
  2. With jQuery you can write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code. You can use it for things like animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements. Extremely good thing is that it is compatible with popular browsers, so you do not have to write different chunks of JavaScript code for each browser.
  3. Uncompressed version is easy to read and modify but is large in size.
    Minified version has all comments, whitespace, and other unnecessary characters removed from the file. It is smaller in size and convenient to place it on your site.

#28

What is jQuery?

JQuery is a popular javascript libbrary that provides many useful functions including animation, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, slide shows, client side form validations, etc.

How does it help us as developers?

It helps shorten the time in developing and testing all the useful and common functions provided in jQuery.

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

Uncompressed is the full version that could be interesting for those who want to review and understand the source code.
The minified has any unnecessary characters removed to help in loading fast with web pages that choose to included it.


#29

What is jQuery?
- jQuery is a JavaScript library with many different uses.
How does it help us as developers?
- It saves us the time of having to reinvent the wheel, and write different code for different browsers,
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
- The uncompressed is a much larger file and takes longer for users to download so the minified provides a much nicer user experience.


#30
  1. jQuery is a JavaScript library that helps the developer to create webpages and web apps easier and quicker by providing common tasks like e.g. DOM manipulation, Ajax requests, animated effects etc. It is in fact the most widely used JavaScript library by a large margin.
  2. As JavaScript developers we profit from using jQuery by saving lots of time as we don’t need to reinvent the wheel everytime for tasks that are needed for virtually any advanced web site. It also leads to much shorter code and with that increases readability and maintainability: with jQuery often complex tasks can be expressed in a single line of code that would otherwise need 10-20 lines of code. It is promoted as “the write less, do more, JavaScript” library, accordingly.
  3. The uncompressed version of jQuery is more readable and with that easier to modify, whereas the minified version has all unnecessary characters removed from the file but offers still the full functionality. The latter is to be preferred to include on a web page, as it is smaller and hence needs less to time to download.

#31

What is jQuery?
jQuery is a javaScript library . The most popular javaScript library.

How does it help us as developers?
It helps us write clean and faster code , and we do not have to write different parts of code for each browser , using jQuery we reuse code already written for a specific kind of thing .

Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The uncompressed version of jQuery is a file of the library with all the comments and spaces that make it readable and the minjfied version is not readable because has no spaces and comments just to make it fast to downloaded and lightweight.


#32
  1. JS Coding Library
  2. Makes code easier to read and less code is needed to be written to complete a task.
  3. One is a bigger file and easier to dissect and read the other is more compressed and harder to read.

#33
What is jQuery?

jQuery is a library that has been created to speed up develop of webpages/web apps. You can use jQuery to achieve results in a couple of lines of code as opposed to 20 lines when not using jQuery.

How does it help us as developers?

See above.

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

The two different versions of jQuery are useful for different purposes. The uncompressed version is nice to read when using to develop/program with, and the minified/compressed version is used for deployment as it has been compressed and is approximately a sixth of the size of the uncompressed version, speeding up page load times.


#34

What is jQuery?
jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.
How does it help us as developers?
with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify, but it’s around 160kb in size (at the time of writing).
The minified .js file has all comments, whitespace, and other unnecessary characters removed from the file, squeezing the whole library into a mere 23kb. Although you can’t easily read the code, this is the version you’ll want to place on your site, as it’s much quicker for visitors to download.


#35
  1. A JS based library that allows you to import code.
  2. Saves time and effort
    3.The uncompressed version is readable, the minified version is small to allow for code to load faster.

#36
  1. jQuery is a library of already written functions that is used by almost anybody who uses javascript.
  2. It helps developers use powerful functions without having the write the lengthy code required to make such a function work properly. It has already been coded and the query allows you to simply call the functions.
  3. The uncompressed file has all of the comments and whitespace that makes it easy for us humans to read and understand simply. It is the larger file of the two. Minified gets rid of all the “wasted” space by omitting the spaces and comments. This makes it better to use on the website for faster load and download times.

#37
What is jQuery?

it’s a library that makes it easy to build code in javascript.
How does it help us as developers?
it makes it easier for developers to source code from the library and quickly implement the processes and functions in javascript.

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

uncompressed is easier to work with but takes a lot of space, minified removes all aspects of the code that makes it easier to read and work with such as the spaces and comments but takes a lot less space.


#38
  1. What is jQuery?

    jQuery is a library that intends to be a shorter code that functions equally to JavaScript file.
    Instead of writing a function that may consist of 10 to 20 lines of code, jQuery enables to
    produce the same task in one line of code.

  2. How does it help uss as developers?

    One instance that jQuery can be beneficial to developers is having jQuery operate on
    multiple browsers. In this way, developers do not have the tedious task of writing code for
    each individual browser. Additional benefits of jQuery are:

    • Manipulation the DOM, which enables to add, remove, and reorder content in the Web
      page in a few lines of code.
    • Creating slide show that can rival that of Flash.
    • Making drop down menus.
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

    In minified jQuery library, no comments, whitespace, and unnecessary characters are
    removed from the file. This type of jQuery file is of 23kb of data, enabling for the library to be
    downloaded quicker. The drawbacks of this library is that it is not visually pleasing to the
    reader.

    Meanwhile, a uncompressed jQuery library, it is readable code that is larger in size to
    minified jQuery, where the library can be composed of 160 kb in size.


#39
  1. A library to increase web developer productivity.
  2. It provides reusable common features, and improves cross-browser compatibility.
  3. Minimized - for production performance. Uncompressed for debugging and troubleshooting.

#40
  1. jQuery is a very popular Javascript library which is also written in Javascript.
  2. It helps developers because it has a lot of functions integrated which make it easier to build websites, for example adding animated effects to elements, creating image slideshows or making drop-down menus.
  3. uncompressed version to read and modify / minified version for normale usage because it needs less space.
