Thread: Installing jQuery

  1. #1

    Installing jQuery

    I've downloaded JDK w/ NetBeans IDE, Apache Ant, and the jQuery script but when I run it, it doesn't install.
    How do you build it?
    Their site just says "download JDK, Ant, and build jQuery to start using it". I'm lost.

    Edit: I think I have to set Ant up somehow, but don't understand it's doc.
    http://ant.apache.org/manual/

    you don't install jquery ... it's just an include from html, that you define in the head of ur html ...
    HTML Code:
    <script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript" /></script>

    What the heck is that?

    I'm so confused... I installed JDK, Netbeans, and have been fist fighting Ant all day... just so I'd be able to make a pretty jQuery tooltip.

    I'm freaking out. If I wasn't at work I'd have busted my face open on the desk by now.

    Edit: Wait a tick. If all I want is a tooltip; and jQuery is just some header ref. link; and it's ok to use other site's code then... Bwahaha!

    I can't see what you're linking their site is down. But I don't need to. It sounds as if those are the minimum requirements for a server ... just include the include the javascript file in the head.

    Think you guys might be talking about 2 different things. I think there is a jQuery for Java and one for JavaScript and they are unrelated.

    Nice script.
    I see why his bestwebgall mainbar is on the leftside though... the thumbnails overflow to the right (if you leave it default)

    I guess I'll add 2 scripts for links on the right side and links in the middle. :\

    Edit: ^ Does that mean I'm thinking like a Java script kiddie?

    Yeah I'm an idiot.

    So essentially, jQuery is kinda like a simplified version of JavaScript?

    Edit: Oh teehee, I'm learning stuff. I feel so giddy. It reminds me of AS.
