TMS Blog: jQuery

May 23, 2022

jQuery. In previous articles in this series, we've covered some big JS libraries like Bootstrap and FontAwesome.  But there's another important JS library out there.  It can be found lurking under approximately 75% of all websites globally.  It first arrived on the scene more than 15 years ago.  And it is likely to be with us for the foreseeable future, even though its use has started to decline. I'm talking of course about jQuery.  But while you can use Bootstrap and FontAwesome in your TMS WEB Core projects without needing to resort to JavaScript coding, the same cannot really be said for jQuery.  At its core, jQuery can be thought of as a kind of extension of sorts to the JavaScript language.  Their motto is Write Less, Do More. We'll be taking a look at where jQuery might find a good fit in TMS WEB Core projects, and also some of the unexpected challenges that might arise.
