jQuery: Write less, do more

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

John Resig, the creator of jQuery has made a slideshow presentation about the advantages of using jQuery in combination with Ruby on Rails.

For everyone that hasn't heard of jQuery in the past let me remind you that it's about a lightweight "Comprehensive DOM, Event, Animation, and Ajax JavaScript Library" as described here. If you are inrested in taking a look at what you can achieve with jQuery check out the demos below:

  1. jQuery Showcase #01: Dragable Objects
  2. jQuery Showcase #02: HTTP shell
  3. jQuery Showcase #03: Display website thumbnail on mouse over
If you are intrested in similar Javascript libs/frameworks check these out as well:
