jQuery UI removes the difficulty of building engaging and effective user interfaces. It provides a range of components that can quickly and easily be used out of the box with little configuration. They each expose a comprehensive set of properties and methods for integration with your pages or applications if a more complex configuration is required.
So far, we've seen how the library can be obtained, how your system can be set up to utilize it, and how the library is structured. We've also looked at how the different widgets can be themed or customized, how the API simply and consistently exposes the library's functionality, and the different categories of component.
We've covered some important topics during the course of this chapter, but now, thankfully, we can get on with using the components of jQuery UI and get down to some proper coding!
