jQuery simplifies building rich, interactive web frontends. Getting started with this JavaScript library is easy, but it can take years to fully realize its breadth and depth; this cookbook shortens the learning curve considerably.

Synopsis:

This book provides concrete details on how to build web interfaces with jQuery, the champion of the Ajax frameworks. jQuery rapidly climbed to prominence in the Ajax world, leaping forward in a crowded field. While much of that has to do with its power and relative ease of use, applying jQuery is still a challenge. "jQuery Cookbook" shows readers how to add jQuery to their web sites and applications, with recipe after recipe detailing tasks from basic integration to complex user interface development.

Synopsis:

The Canvas element is a revolutionary feature of HTML5 that enables powerful graphics for rich Internet applications, and this pocket reference provides the essentials you need to put this element to work. If you have working knowledge of JavaScript, this book will help you create detailed, interactive, and animated graphics — from charts to animations to video games — whether you're a web designer or a programmer interested in graphics.

Canvas Pocket Reference provides both a tutorial that covers all of the element's features with plenty of examples and a definitive reference to each of the Canvas-related classes, methods, and properties.

You'll learn how to:

  • Draw lines, polygons, and curves
  • Apply colors, gradients, patterns, and transparency
  • Use transformations to smoothly rotate and resize drawings
  • Work with text in a graphic environment
  • Apply shadows to create a sense of depth
  • Incorporate bitmapped images into vector graphics
  • Perform image processing operations in JavaScript

Synopsis:

"As someone who uses jQuery on a regular basis, it was surprising to discover how much of the library Im not using. This book is indispensable for anyone who is serious about using jQuery for non-trivial applications." — Raffaele Cecco, longtime developer of video games, including Cybernoid, Exolon, and Stormlord

jQuery is the "write less, do more" JavaScript library. Its powerful features and ease of use have made it the most popular client-side JavaScript framework for the Web. This book is jQuery's trusty companion: the definitive "read less, learn more" guide to the library.

jQuery Pocket Reference explains everything you need to know about jQuery, completely and comprehensively. You'll learn how to:

  • Select and manipulate document elements
  • Alter document structure
  • Handle and trigger events
  • Create visual effects and animations
  • Script HTTP with Ajax utilities
  • Use jQuery's selectors and selection methods, utilities, plugins and more

The 25-page quick reference summarizes the library, listing all jQuery methods and functions, with signatures and descriptions.
