JavaScript code

What is jQuery?.

jQuery is not a language, but a well written JavaScript code. Helps in making things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, event handling, animation, and Ajax much simpler with an easy-to-use API that works across a multitude of browsers with its cross-platform compatibility. Facilitates to write UI related function codes in minimum possible lines.
