This Week in jQuery, vol. 5

Posted on by

Sorry about the unplanned hiatus last week. Not sure how long I’m going to be able to sustain this, but here we go again with another weekly roundup of jQuery news…

jQuery + Server-Side Solutions

A common complaint in the earlier days of jQuery was that there wasn’t enough information on how to integrate jQuery with server-side languages (or frameworks), so it’s nice to see a proliferation of tutorials in this area. Here are a few of the recent ones:


Fun Stuff

Chris Barr used jQuery to create a fun little game, Guessr: Guess the Flickr Tag, which also takes advantage of the jQuery UI ThemeRoller.

    the error url is:

    Karl– I’ve really enjoyed reading This Week In JQuery and I always look forward to the latest one. Perhaps you could alternate weeks between jquery and jquery-ui, so that each update only needs to happen every 2 weeks.

    Andreas, Dan, and Jeoff,
    Thanks for the encouragement, and I’m glad you like these posts. I hope I didn’t sound like I was complaining. Jeoff, an alternating, once-every-2-weeks post makes sense to me. We might have to change the titles to “This Fortnight in jQuery,” though. ;)
