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

There is a small and large version. The large version contains all of the comments and spacing and is easy to read. The smaller version is best for website use as it is condensed to 26kb and enables quicker user download.

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a library containing the most commonly used functions for webpage design.

How does it help us as developers?

Developers can write 90%-95% less code by calling jQuery functions as opposed to writing their own JavaScript code by using jQuery.

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

The uncompressed jQuery file is easy to read and modify, but is larger in size, and thus require more time to download. The minified removes all comments and whitespace to reduce file size, so visitors can download the file more quickly.

  2. You can use it to make the code in your work more efficient, easier to build apps and run features.
  3. minified is a compressed version, with various characters removed, its easier for integrating with the website but harder to read, uncompressed is the opposite and has all the characters, easier to read and is slightly larger (160kb)

1. jQuery is a library of JavaScript code. This code was previously written and used by a developer to produce a variety of uses mostly in HTML web development. The developer or developers who originally wrote the onerous code are willing to share their product. jQuery is a boon for its time saving and concise simplicity. It is a free and open source software.
2. jQuery is a tool to help developers become more productive. Especially when a large volume of code is necessary to produce an application. More than likely someone has written the code already and it is available on jQuery. jQuery is licensed for public use and the appropriate file can be easily linked . Therefore the entire volume of the code does not have to appear in your program. Often the link can be handled with only one line.
3. In jQuery the developer has the option to use it in two ways. The uncompressed.js file or the minified.js file. Here is where the volume of the code can be limited based on the preference of the developer. The uncompressed.js code is the full size version with the entire code that loads more slowly for the end user. The minified.js code is basically the opposite version of the uncompressed and is a more efficient time/space saver for the developer and loads faster for the end user.

  1. What is jQuery?

A library that is full of handy functions.

  1. How does it help us as developers?

By using jQuery a developer can save a lot of time. Especially jQuery is working on different browser in the same way. So, a developer don’t need to care about the implementation. If writing code on yourself, you need to do!

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

The uncompressed version i.e. can be used for a fork. The code is formatted, commented and verbose. The minified version instead is a shorter version. The usecase of it is that when jQuery is implemented into a website, then the code only needs to be functional. That means at this point comments, formatting and those stuff are unnecessarily lines for the compiler. Therefore, they are removed when the code is implemented into a website after the developer finished it.

1-What is jQuery?

İt makes us adjust DOM, change and add dynamic effects to the elements, and let us use AJAX and be able to request additional information and change the foreground of the site, without refreshing the page. Also it helps the page to keep its form and avoid anomalies when the client side is using different browsers.

3-Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
The minimum version is 23 kb while the uncompressed version is 160kb. When loading a page, it loads faster if we use the 23 kb version.
