What is jQuery?

  • Share this:

jQuery is a JavaScript library based on the idea of "Write less, do more," quick, lightweight, and feature-rich." It's simple to use APIs to make it much easier to manipulate and translate HTML documents, handle events, add animation effects to a website that works smoothly on all major browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and more.

At the beginning of 2006, jQuery was first designed by John Resig. Currently, the jQuery project is being managed and maintained as an open-source project by a dispersed development group.

Elements for modification can be simply selected.

It is easy to manipulate DOM elements and their attributes.
