Jquery Overview

jQuery is a JavaScript library that simplifies AJAX, JSON and DOM manipulation, among other things. Recently an interfacing library was created (the jQuery UI) to standardise some common functionalities like date pick pop ups, buttons and alerts.


Which API to use?

For speed I recommend use Google's API jQuery library. Load JQuery and UI (need to use UI to animate colors):

<!-- JQUERY -->
<script type = 'text/javascript' src = 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.0/jquery.min.js'></script>

<!-- JQUERY UI -->
<script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">google.load("jqueryui", "1.5.2");</script>
