What jQuery Does:
The jQuery library provides a general-purpose abstraction layer for common web scripting. The main tasks that we can perform by using jQuery are:
- Access parts of a page: jQuery offers a robust and efficient selector mechanism for retrieving exactly the piece of the document that is to be inspected or manipulated.
- Modify the appearance of a page: jQuery can change the classes or individual style properties applied to a portion of the document even after the page has been rendered.
- Alter the content of a page: jQuery can modify the content of a document. By using jQuery we can change the text, insert or swipe an image, change the order of a list and change the entire structure of an HTML page.
- Respond to a user's interaction with a page: The jQuery library offers an easy way to intercept a wide variety of events with event handlers without the need to change the HTML code.
