jQuery Reading Assignment


#121
  1. jQuery is a library for javaScript webpages and web apps. It speeds up the development process because it includes many functions that are required for modern web page development.

  2. jQuery makes it easy to write javaScript application and create eye catching animated effects. It speeds up the development process because it eliminates the need to reinvest the wheel and it has code that works on many different browsers and eliminates incompatibilities.

  3. There are 2 versions of jQuery, one which is small and much quicker for visitors to download, but is not easy to read as it it compress, and another which is easy to read and modify but is large in size.

#122
  1. jQuery is one of the most popular (and free) JavaScript libraries.
  2. jQuery allows you to write powerfull JS apps using fewer lines of code
  3. We have 2 versions of jQuery becouse: Uncompressed, allows programers to understand the code, and minified, makes it faster for users to download the webpage

#123
  • jQuery is a library
  • It condenses a lot of peoples work into a single source. (It probably also helps by telling us about things we didn’t even think there might be a need for.)
  • The minified version loads quickly, but the uncompressed version is easy to read (and understand) and modify.

#124

What is jQuery?

  • It is a library can be used in building web page and web app.
    How does it help us as developers?
  • We can make use of the library an reuse the code written by the other programmers. So, we can build the web app much easier.
    Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
  • uncompressed ver: can read the code by human eyes
  • minified ver: small in size so easy to run in program

#125
  1. jQuery is a free JavaScript library.

  2. With jQuery you can write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code.

  3. Uncompressed jQuery is easy to read and modify but it’s size is large. Minify jQuery isn’t easy to read but it’s size is small and suitable to place on a webpage.


#126

1. What is jQuery? It is a free JavaScript library.
2. How does it help us as developers? We can use the jQuery functions to write JavaScript apps, add more eye-catchy effects and assure their compatibility between the most popular browsers.
3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? The uncompressed version is a 160kb file with all the comments to easily read and understand the code, and the minified version is a lighter version of 23kb designed to make it faster but keeping the same functionality.


#127

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?
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.


#128
  1. What is jQuery?
    An open source JavaScript library with ready-to-use codes

2.How does it help us as developers?
jQuery’с code is compatible with all browsers.It’s enable developers write powerful JavaScript apps with bild in functions as:animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements.

3.Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The uncompressed file is easy to read and modify with vomments inside, but is quite large size,wich make it haevi for downloading.
The minified has the same functionality but small in size with all the necessary elements removed .
Тhis allows for better speed and convenience of the user


#129
  1. Library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaSctipt webpages and web apps.
  2. Can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10 - 20 lines of regular JavaScript thereby making it easy to write powerful apps.
  3. Uncompressed - easy to read but around 160 kb in size
    Minifield - not easy to read and around 23 kb in size.

#130
  1. a javascript plug-in /library
  2. provides much in-built functionality that minimises the amount of code needed for a developer to write
  3. one for readability. one for speed of use.

#131

1- jQuery is a useful library for writing websites and mobile apps.
2- jQuery is useful for us developers as it saves us from writing lines upon lines of code to recreate functions already included in this library. I find cross-browser compatibility particularly useful!
3- The reason we have 2 versions of jQuery is one is useful for us to learn what each function does and has text and explanations while the other is a compressed version better suited to upload to our website to make it light weight!


#132

What is jQuery?
A cool javascript library that makes your pages more fun, interactive and beautiful.

How does it help us as developers?
There are lots of cools things we can do with javascript but it might take many lines of code to do what one simple jquery expression might do.

Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Because the minified is faster to load so your wait time for your user is reduced.


#133
What is jQuery
  • a Javascript library that enables easy to use syntax to create dynamic websites and simplify other javascript tasks
    How does it help us as developers?
  • enables easier and quicker implementation of javascript tasks
    Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
  • the minified version is the smaller version with just the functionality included - no comments, documentation etc. It is a much smaller file for websites to download, so doesnt significantly slow down websites that use jquery.

#134
  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a free JavaScript library

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    It can help to write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify and the minified .js file squeeze the whole library into a mere 23kb and it’s much quicker for visitors to download.


#135
  1. It is a freely available JavaScript library that helps developers write succinct code that works on multiple browsers.

  2. JavaScript helps us by reducing the amount of code that we have to write to perform powerful operations, and ensures that this code will behave as intended in multiple browser environments.

  3. The uncompressed version is developer friendly, containing comments and indentation that make it easier to read and modify for humans. Whereas, the minified version strips out all of the whitespace and comments to provide a file that users can download from the server much faster.


#136
  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a popular library in JavaScript which includes many functions that can be used by the programmer.
  2. How does it help us as developers?
    It helps us as developers to reuse functions that other already have written. It also makes the code shorter and potentially more readable.
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    Both has the same functions and thereby the same usability, but the minified file is compressed and much smaller, thereby the program would be faster, but it is not as easy to read as the uncompressed file which includes comments and space.

#137
  1. It is a free library that consists of a big amount of code, that everyone can reference to and use in his website
  2. We can save a lot of time writing code for some common application, because a lot of people did it before, and they spent a lot of time polishing it and getting rid of the bugs - no need to do it again
  3. Minified version is being used as a reference JS file on our website, because it contains no comments and therefore is smaller and quicker to load and read from. Uncompressed, however, contains a lot of comments and is suitable for getting familiar with the library

1 What is jQuery ?

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

2 How does it help us as developers ?

With jQuery developers can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code. jQuery is great for adding animated effects to elements, creating image slideshows, making drop-down menus, creating drag-and-drop interfaces etc. Developers can do all of the above things by writing your own JavaScript, but it’s so much easier just to use jQuery.

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

Both have the same functionally but the .min.js has all unnecessary characters removed in order to make the file size smaller. You are better using the minified version (.min) for your live environment, they will load faster. Jquery.min.js is nothing else but compressed version of jquery.js. You can use it the same way as jquery.js, but it’s smaller, so in production you should use minified version and when you’re debugging you can use normal jquery.js version.


#139
  1. jQuery is a JavaScript library, with functions and working lines of code already written, so that web developers can building functioning web pages quickly.

  2. It helps by shortening code, and with the plugins, it can result in us adding animated effects, or making XML requests, opening up many possibilities.

  3. The minified version is for uploading onto the web server, so that users can download the jQuery file quickly. The uncompressed version is for reading and modifying.


#140
  • jQuery is a library of functions that can be used by any website downloading them.

  • Using those functions means for the developer, less javascript code to write, less javascript knowledge requirement to achieve complex behaviors and less time spent on coding, documenting and testing. Finally it allows backward compatibilities of functions that would take time to test otherwise.

  • Because bandwidth is crucial to load web pages faster and retain users, one should always use the minified version of and library. However when developing developers need to use the uncompressed version to read and understand the code in Javascript.
