Writing jQuery Plugins for Fun and (non)Profit
We all love jQuery - it's easy, efficient, and there's tons of information online. But with that mass of information comes confusion: When you want to abstract some of your code into a plugin, how do you structure it? How do you take in options, and how can you be sure you haven't broken the way jQuery works? And when you're done, where do you put it and how do distribute it to the masses?
This talk will run through some of the basics and guide you in the right direction. In particular, we'll cover:
- structuring your plugin code
- making your code testable - and testing it!
- tracking your code on github
- getting your plugin on the jQuery site
