jQuery ui cookbook review

Posted by Jon on August 24, 2013 in development, reviews, tools |

jQuery ui is useful development tool that aids in the creation of engaging web apps and sites. We looked at a brief introduction a couple months ago to the jQuery ui library and the Roundpartner team have been given another book on this subject to review called jQuery ui cookbook published by Packt and we would like to share some of it with you.

How does jQuery ui benefit you. Have a quick look on the jQuery website and you will see the amount of websites that use the framework. The ui library adds more widgets and functions like date pickers and sliders. Cross browser capable and very adaptable, it is easy to include in a web app or site. This is all explained in the book.
Brief over view of the book.
There are examples of creating an accordion and theming it for your site. Then it covers auto complete forms and crafting buttons, next it explains using datepickers and adding dialogs. Customising your own menus and adding progress bars. Sliders and spinners are covered and you are shown how to use tabs with dynamic loading.  Using tooltips and applying affects. In the last chapter it covers extending ui library and developing your own widgets. Building development tools and working with backbone.js  gives you a good foundation in learning more about the JavaScript and getting the best out of it.
This is a well rounded book that covers a lot of what you need to create beautiful and user friendly interfaces for your web app or site.
Great reference for experienced developers using jQuery ui library or someone who is getting serious about building websites. There is something for all.
We really liked the “how it works” sections explaining the workings of what is happening .
The book is available from Packt publishing and is a must for anyone serious about the modern web and making it easier to use.
