NOTE

Almost a fork for node-jquery, but rewritten because the jquery team is taking over maintaining the jQuery package coolaj86/node-jquery#59.

DOES NOT WORK ON WINDOWS

Many people are having problems getting this module to work on windows. The failure has to do with building contextify on window. It seems to be a windows environment issue. I don't have access to a windows machine so I cannot explore working through the windows install process. If you figure out how to build contextify on windows please send me working instructions!

Installing.

npm install jquery-loader

Usage

    var $ = require('jquery').create();

Examples

    $("<h1>test passes</h1>").appendTo("body");
    console.log($("body").html());

In Node.JS you may also create separate window instances

    var jsdom = require('jsdom').jsdom
      , myWindow = jsdom().createWindow()
      , $ = require('jquery').create()
      , jQuery = require('jquery').create(myWindow)
      ;

    $("<h1>test passes</h1>").appendTo("body");
    console.log($("body").html());

    jQuery("<h3>second test passes</h3>").appendTo("body");
    console.log(jQuery("body").html());

Output:

    <h1>test passes</h1>
    <h3>second test passes</h3>

You may also specify the version of jQuery you'd like to use

    var $ = require('jquery')(null, '1.9');

Currently the version defaults to 1.10.1.

Following versions are available -

  • 1.6(.4)
  • 1.7(.2)
  • 1.8(.3)
  • 1.9(.1)
  • 1.10(.1)
  • 2.0(.3)

JSONP Example

    var $ = require('jquery');

    $.getJSON('http://twitter.com/status/user_timeline/treason.json?count=10&callback=?',function(data) {
      console.log(data);
    });
