Use jQuery instead of Javascript?

I heard that jQuery is the same as javascript but easier to understand… it that true and can jQuery replace javascript for a website to create pop-up menus and stuff?

You are correct–jQuery makes it easier to perform Javascript operations. However, I wouldn’t get too involved in jQuery until you have a firm grasp of Javascript.

    You heard wrong. It does *not* replace javascript.
    jQuery is a javascript library that “enhances” the standard javascript at the expense of memory use and processor use, but makes it easier for programmers to use various functions without reinventing the wheel.

    jQuery is just javascript. It’s basically a javascript function you call.

    window.onload = function() {
        document.querySelector( “#popup” ).style.opacity = 1;

    $ (document).ready( function() {
        $ (“#popup”).css( “opacity”, 1);

    jQuery does make stuff easier, for instance if you want to assign an onclick function to multiple elements, you have to loop through them with JavaScript, while in jQuery, you can use .each()


Your opinion matters. Add it below.
