For as long as I’ve been a jQuery user – going on 18 months now – I’ve been frustrated by the slow speed and sometimes intermittent availability of the jQuery documentation site. Now we’ve got a blazing-fast API browser that presents jQuery Core and jQuery UI side by side in the same cool interface. Better yet, it’s available as an Adobe AIR app for offline viewing. Sweet!
I could quibble about the lack of bookmarkable URLs and the occasionally sparse documentation of corner cases. Instead, I’ll just remain upbeat about this huge step in the right direction. No matter how intuitive jQuery’s API, it’s a powerful library whose roster of methods continues to grow. Nothing speeds up development faster than quick, persistent access to quality API documentation.
