Book Description

You’re designing a website, which is going to become a work of art, with snappy response times – do you want to slow it down with lots of extra, unwanted functionality? jQuery Tools can provide you with just the functionality you need, that appears on most websites around the world, and which you can customize to your heart’s content.

jQuery Tools UI Library will show you how to add useful functionality to your website, using the compact but powerful jQuery Tools library. You will get stuck into simple yet powerful projects that you can implement straightaway, and which will give you inspiration for developing your own versions in future projects.

You will go on a whirlwind tour through jQuery Tools, beginning with best practices that should be used, through to detailed projects on each tool in the Library, that you can copy from the book, or download from Packt’s website. The book will include tips and comments on how to alter elements, or ideas on what can be included to extend the functionality you want to include in your websites.

Begin with a short explanation of the origins of jQuery Tools, followed by some of the best practices that should be used, as well as some detail on how to use its API and event capabilities.

When you have finished reading “jQuery Tools UI Library”, you will have learnt all about the library, using clear, practical examples that you can take into your own projects and use, or develop into your own designs for future use.
