WordPress Plugin with jQuery

  • At the end of this course, i’ll provide you the entire plugin as files to use.

jQuery is an amazing framework made on top of JavaScript and released in 2006 by John Resign.

At its origins, jQuery was created to make JavaScript easier to execute. jQuery’s motto is “write less, do more” — and that’s exactly what it does; jQuery is a reusable piece of code that enables you to do more with JavaScript.

Why jQuery?

Most of developers that begin on WordPress have few notions of coding. jQuery is a very good alternative to start coding. Let me give you some reasons to use jQuery:

  • You don’t need to be experimented to start with jQuery,
  • Documentation is full of quick solutions to use,
  • Low restrictions on code (due also to JavaScript),
  • jQuery provides an amazing selector to select DOM elements,
  • You can write multiple tasks in one line,
  • You can handle every elements of your website,
  • It is Cross-Browser support…

You understand now why jQuery can be a powerful ally. There are many other reasons to use it but the main one: it is the best framework to start coding.

“jQuery takes common JavaScript tasks and wraps them into methods. Then, instead of writing out all that code by hand, developers can simply call these methods — jQuery takes care of the rest. These shortcuts allow users to write better code and be more productive. Many sites with JavaScript use jQuery, with many estimates putting the total at more than 50% of all websites.” Armina Mkhitaryan

So if you are looking for an efficient course to learn how to code your plugin with jQuery and WordPress, you are at the right place.
