What I like about this book is the level of detail in each exercise. You start by studying the basics of jQuery UI from widgets to interactive components.
From there VanToll guides you through exercises for custom animations, theming, and even building your own widgets from scratch. This book is perfect for anyone who already has jQuery experience but little-to-no jQuery UI experience. I also did a more thorough review of this book if you want to check that out to learn more. With the book jQuery UI 1. Later chapters get into event handlers and programmatically checking for actions on individual UI elements.
These lessons get detailed so this book is great for anyone who wants to take jQuery UI and make it their own. This book covers jQuery UI v1. Then Eric goes into more detailed lessons covering each component. These are UI elements like tabs, accordions, modal dialog boxes, and calendar date pickers among many others.
These elements can save time and stress when building a rather complex web form. But you need to know all your options before you can just build something. These lessons are very detailed but not impossible for newcomers. You just need to know typical jQuery syntax and how to apply basic jQuery UI elements onto a webpage. Anyone with minor experience using jQuery should be able to work through these examples comfortably.
I highly recommend this book as a further resource for developers looking to push themselves beyond the basics. In this book Adam shares advice, design patterns, and reusable code snippets for common jQuery UI workflows. Many recipes include jQuery scripts to check user events and unit testing for more complex projects. Plus Adam shares his advice for getting the most out of your code with optimization and reusability.
The jQuery team made a small library to help with this process called jQuery Mobile.
It runs on the jQuery core but it comes with default components made for smaller screens. Everything has to be structured for mobile screens including the size of page elements and the interactive features.
Later chapters get into custom theming with jQuery Mobile offering CSS hacks and pre-built solutions for theme design. Overall this is a pretty nice book for beginners and it covers all the primary features in great detail.
Instead he dives right into jQuery Mobile setup, components, and user interactions. Mobile webapps need to be fast so these optimization tips will prove to be crucial in your project work. It certainly is possible for someone to learn jQuery and jQuery Mobile at the same time.
Some of them are not up-to-date and many of them contain incorrect information, hence choosing the good resource is vital. There are also too many advises to use this book, to use that book, but you don't need that. All you need is a couple of good books on jQuery to learn and master this useful library.
