Appendix A. Online Resources

 

I can’t remember what I used to know

Somebody help me now and let me go

 
 -- Devo, “Deep Sleep”

The following online resources represent a starting point for learning more about jQuery, JavaScript, and web development in general, beyond what is covered in this book. There are far too many sources of quality information on the web for this appendix to approach anything resembling an exhaustive list. Furthermore, while other print publications can also provide valuable information, they are not noted here.

jQuery Documentation

jQuery Wiki

The documentation on jquery.com is in the form of a wiki, which means that the content is editable by the public. The site includes the full jQuery API, tutorials, getting started guides, a plug-in repository, and more:

  • http://docs.jquery.com/

jQuery API

On jQuery.com, the API is available in two locations—the documentation section and the paginated API browser.

The documentation section of jQuery.com includes not only jQuery methods, but also all of the jQuery selector expressions:

  • http://docs.jquery.com/Selectors

  • http://docs.jquery.com/

  • http://jquery.com/api

jQuery API Browser

Jörn Zaeferrer has put together a convenient tree-view browser of the jQuery API with a search feature and alphabetical or categorical sorting:

Visual jQuery

This API browser designed by Yehuda Katz is both beautiful and convenient. It also provides quick viewing of methods for a number of jQuery plug-ins:

Web Developer Blog

Sam Collet keeps a master list of jQuery documentation, including downloadable versions and cheat sheets, on his blog:
