1. What is jQuery?

jQuery is the most popular free JavaScript library.

2. How does it help us as developers?

JQuery makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps. because you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have with much longer code otherwise.

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

There are two versions because uncompressed .js file is around 160kb in size while minified .js file is squeezed to 23kb and therefore not that easy to read and code but much quicker for visitors to download.

  1. jQuery is a library to build javascript web apps and web pages.
  2. it helps us as developers by being able to write fewer lines of code.
  3. uncompressed version is a bit larger and easier to read and modify while the minified is smaller and more difficult to read but quicker downloads by user

#103
  1. jQuery is free JS library.
  2. It simplifies our own programming. By reducing a number of code lines we can be faster and more efficient. With jQuery we can implement “chunks of code” already written by other programmers in to our code.
  3. Minified is smaller in size and thus more appropriate to use in our web pages. Uncompressed are mainly used in working progress.

  1. jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps

  2. JQuery helps developers recreate flexible interactive webpages without going through of reinventing the wheel every single time

  3. JQuery has two versions with the uncompressed version having easily readable code that occupies a lot of space, up to 160kb. Where as the minified version has all comments, whitespace, and other unnecessary characters removed from the file, squeezing the whole library into a mere 23kb.


#105

What is jQuery?
jQuery is a very popular javascript library.

How does it help us as developers?
it allows faster developing by providing useful functionalities to use vs creating them from the ground up.

Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
One has all comments and spacing that may be helpful to understand how it was made. The minified version takes away all unnecessary comments and spacing for size functionality, allowing easier and faster access.


#106

What is jQuery?
The most popular java script library.

How does it help us as developers?
It helps us save time by reusing code and helps with multi browser integration.

Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Uncompressed has all the information including notes and white spaces that makes it easier to read but it is larger. The minified version is the one you want to put on your website because it is smaller and downloads faster.


#107

What is jQuery?
An open source javascript library for adding functionality to a website
How does it help us as developers?
It is really helpful for animation, AJAX requests to the webserver, creating slideshows, manipulating the DOM, and much more. The programming code is provided ready to use. It helps to make web development quicker and more efficient.
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The minified version (example.min.js) is ‘compressed’ and loads into the browser quickly.
The’ unminified’ or ‘uncompressed’ version (example.js) loads more slowly, but is ‘human readable’.


#108
  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a JavaScript library, known as the “Write Less, Do More Javascript” library
  2. How does it help us as developers?
    It helps developers in having to write less code, therefore saving time in the development process
  3. Why do we have 2 versions of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    The minified version is stripped from comments, white spaces and unnecessary characters, which allows the file to be smaller than the uncompressed one, which is in its case more useful if we want to analyse and understand what the code is actually doing.

#109

JQuery is a library designed to make common JavaScript tasks easier, including animation and form validation.

The minified version is faster to download (which makes things faster for users), while the other version is easier to read (which may help with debugging).


#110

What is jQuery?

It’s a popular library with a lot of common functionality that is also free to use.

How does it help us as developers?

It has a lot of code that helps with browser compatibility issues. It used to be the case in the early days, when you built a website, that your code would work in one browser, and break in another. This library has the majority of these issues ironed out so that you know if you use it, it will just work.

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

The readable version has a lot of white space and comments to make the code readable so that you can understand what it does, but you don’t want to actually use this file for calculations. You should use the file that is smaller with all the comments and white space removed. It will work just the same, in fact faster than the human readable version.


#111

1 What is jQuery?

jQuery is by far the most popular JavaScript library in use today providing large range of functionality.

2 How does it help us as developers?

jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps. Often with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.

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

The jQuery library actually comes in 2 forms:
◦ 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.

  2. With jQuery we can write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code; jQuery is great for things like animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements; jQuery let us easily write cross-browser JavaScript code.

  3. The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify, but it’s around 160kb in size and much more time to load, while the minified .js file has all comments, whitespace, and other unnecessary characters removed from the file, squeezing the whole library into a mere 23kb.It’s much quicker for visitors to download.

  1. What is J Query ?
    JQuery is a free library of code that you can reuse.
  2. How does it help us as developers ?
    It helps us write powerful apps, create animated effects, drop down menus, manipulate data.
    3.There are 2 versions of jquery - uncompressed, is more human readable and minified all the whitespace and comments have been removed and is a fraction of the file size.

#114
  1. It is a library with a bundle of very useful and generalized functions to manage websites in a client-based run code, also ajax supported for server real time access.

  2. So we can focus on our idea instead of building the basics and spending the time of making our code compatible with different frames.

  3. Minified for use, extended for understanding and copy+modify (extraction)

    Enables us to write less code. Often with jQuery 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 versions of jQuery – minified & uncompressed?
    The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify, but it’s around 160kb in size (at the time of writing)

  1. It is a library that is created to make javascript programming easier and faster.

  2. As it contains pre-created codes then it helps the developer into writing for example one line which would be 10 - 20 lines instead if the developer was writing all of the code by him-/herself.

  3. Because 1 version is easy to read and modify and the other one is shrinked so it is more difficult to read. But the main purpose for this 2 version thing is that the first version is bigger in size and the second one is a lot smaller which makes it easier for the user to download the webpage faster.
    The one to have in a webpage is the minified one to make it faster for the user.


#117

What is jQuery?
jQuery is a library of code that adds easy to call functionality to a project

How does it help us as developers?
Coding that would normally take many minutes with many lines of code can be done in one line, saving time for the programmer as well as making cross browser compatability easier.

Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The unbcompressed version allows for easy readability and therefore easy to manipulate but its is over 160k. The minimum version has all the functionailty but is compressed by removing all comments and whitespaces and is around 1/6th the the size of the other version making it quicker to download by the user.


#118

What is jQuery? It is a library that makes it easier to build webpages and webapps
How does it help us as developers? it make it easier, simpler and quicker to build web pages because we can reuse the already written code
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
uncompressed contains all the comments, white space and other additional information so it is easy to read but it is a quite big file, it is on average 3 times bigger than minified version which you should use on your websites because it will be quicker for the final user to download the certain page

query is a library of functions

How does it help us as developers?

It allows developer to reuse the code.

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

one is easy to read the other is quicker to load, I am guessing if you want to modify anything you would use uncompressed version and if not minified version
