The jQuery Mobile plugin library

We have seen how jQuery UI can assist us in assembling the user interface features needed for even a complex web application. The challenges it overcomes are varied and complex. A different set of hurdles exists, however, when preparing our pages for elegant presentation and interaction on mobile devices. To create a website or application for modern smart phones and tablets, we can turn to the jQuery Mobile project.

Like jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile consists of a suite of related components that can be used ala carte but which work together seamlessly. The framework provides an Ajax-driven navigation system, mobile-optimized interactive elements, and advanced touch event handlers. Again, as with jQuery UI, exploring all the features of jQuery Mobile is a daunting task, so instead we will provide some simple examples and refer to the official documentation for more details.
