JavaScript You Need to Know

  • Jack Franklin


jQuery is a framework that’s built on top of JavaScript, not a language in its own right. It is possible to write jQuery with barely any knowledge of JavaScript, but it’s not something I would recommend. If you want to be able to confidently write jQuery plug-ins for your site, or alter plug-ins others have written, you need to be familiar with basic JavaScript. This is why I’m starting with JavaScript that you need to know. This chapter will cover:
  • JavaScript scripts on a web page

  • Variables and objects in JavaScript

  • JavaScript functions

  • Conditionals

  • Looping over arrays and objects

  • Debugging JavaScript
