What would you like to do?
Monkey-patch jquery $('.foo').append(...) to accept variable number arguments and arrays of elements
var originalAppend = $.fn.append
$.fn.append = function() {
if (arguments.length == 1) {
var arg = arguments[0]
if ($.isArray(arg)) {
for (var i=0; i<arg.length; i++) { this.append(arg[i]) }
} else {
originalAppend.call(this, arg)
}
} else {
for (var i=0; i<arguments.length; i++) { this.append(arguments[i]) }
}
return this
}
// Now possible:
$('.foo').append('foo', 'bar', [1,2,3])

Thanks! Very small piece of code for something that should definitely be in jQuery.
