jQuery Mobile: Up and Running by Maximiliano Firtman

Would you like to build one mobile web application that works on iPad and Kindle Fire as well as iPhone and Android smartphones? This introductory guide to jQuery Mobile shows you how. Through a series of hands-on exercises, you’ll learn the best ways to use this framework’s many interface components to build customizable, multiplatform apps. You don’t need any programming skills or previous experience with jQuery to get started.

By the time you finish this book, you’ll know how to create responsive, Ajax-based interfaces that work on a variety of smartphones and tablets, using jQuery Mobile and semantic HTML5 code.

  • Understand how jQuery Mobile works with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript
  • Work with UI components to format content and create forms, lists, navbars, and buttons
  • Create dynamic content with JavaScript, Ajax, and the jQuery core framework
  • Customize your entire user interface with themes and CSS3
