The jQuery UI widget factory provides a mechanism to develop stateful jQuery plug-ins. Defining a plug-in lifecycle allows the removal of excessive boilerplate code.

In this session, we will:

  • Learn how to develop jQuery plug-ins using the jQuery UI widget factory.
  • Explore the widget factory lifecycle, with a focus on creating visual plug-ins (widgets).
  • Discuss best practices in widget development.
  • Explore some pitfalls of developing stateful widgets.
  • Incorporate a responsive design into widgets using the Bootstrap 3 CSS library, which allows widgets to adapt to mobile phones, tablets, and desktop displays.
  • Conclude with an overview of the RichWidget widget set, laying out the groundwork for your contributions to the project.
