About jQuery Plugin Development In 30 Minutes
As an experienced jQuery plugin developer and the operator of a website devoted to jQuery education, I have had many opportunities to talk with other developers and understand what works and what doesn’t when it comes to learning how to build plugins. This short guide is intended to quickly get you up to speed with core concepts, which enable you to start building plugins of your own.
- Creating a plugin
- Generate, Init, and Destroy
- Handling events
- Plugin options
- Setters and Getters
- Styling, CSS, and themes
- Browser and mobile support
- File organization and versioning
I’ve also included bonus content, including sections on jQuery methods, utilities, selectors, and events, as well as a jQuery glossary. jQuery Plugin Development in 30 Minutes really is intended to be a short but productive read — my intention is to avoid the fluff and filler that make up 80% of most programming books, and just get straight to the point!
