    jQuery,  Plugins


    jQuery allows web developers to add extra functionality to their websites. It is Open Source and available as free under the MIT license. It is the JavaScript library that can also work with Ajax Core and Scripting Languages, like PHP and ASP, to access Data and Database. jQuery features DOM (Document Object Model) Element Selections using ‘Sizzle’. Sizzle is a spin-off of the jQuery Project, and is a multi-browser Open Source Selector Engine. DOM is a programming interface for HTML and XML Documents, and represents the same document so it can be manipulated. The DOM is an object oriented Web Page representation. DOM can be manipulated by Scripting Languages like JavaScript and jQuery. We now proceed to demonstrate some Awesome jQuery Plugins that can be very useful.


    jQuery is a fast, small and feature-rich JavaScript Library, that makes HTML document manipulation, event handling, animation and Ajax, much simpler, by creating an API (Application Programming Interface) that is easy to use across a number of browsers. It is light-weight and makes JavaScript much easier to use on the User’s website. Where JavaScript uses a large number of lines of code to execute simple tasks, jQuery can wrap them up into methods that can be called with a single line of code. As of May 2019, jQuery is used by 73% of the 10 million most popular websites. The original author was John Resig. Its initial release date was August 26th 2006. Its present version, as on May 2019, is 3.4.1, and the Licensee is MIT. The size varies from 30-263 KB.
