jQuery makes it easy to build interactive websites and applications. As rich and powerful as it is, however, it can't anticipate everything. Fortunately, you can tap into numerous extension points to create custom selectors and filters, collection and function plugins, property animations, events, Ajax pre- and post-filtering, validation rules, and more. This book shows you how.
Extending jQuery teaches you to build custom extensions to the jQuery library. It covers all the extension points within jQuery and provides guidelines and techniques you can use to make use of them. You'll not only discover how to write plugins, but how to design them for maximum reuse. You'll also learn how to write new widgets and effects for jQuery UI. Along the way, you'll explore extensions in key areas including Ajax, events, animation, and validation.
