I guess Andrew goaded me into posting. I always think of him as the friendly face of Wejoinin, whereas I am the (code) ninja who merely leaves destruction (and lines of code) in his wake.
(Sidenote: I totally went to a talk by John Resig (author of jQuery), and it was totally rad.)
Andrew is looking at me and pointing at his watch. I think I’ve been rambling? Oh where was I?
PS: Other things I like about jQuery (other than the 20KB filesize, have I mentioned that yet?) include a rather sane API (I particularly like the whole $(‘#foo’).val() as a getter, $(‘#foo’).val(‘bar’) as a setter business), in depth documentation with examples (Scriptaculous is somewhat notorious for a “whoo I make things ANIMATE” approach to documentation)
PPS: We here at Wejoinin are environmentally conscious, we conserve those bytes because one day they’ll all go extinct, and we’ll be forced to shout packets at each from hilltop to hilltop instead of sending email. (And reordering packets in your head? Ouch.)
