Filament Group’s chapter on Theming in O’Reilly Media’s “jQuery Cookbook”

Posted by Scott on 12/08/2009

jQuery Cookbook Cover, O'ReillyMedia We’re proud to announce our chapter on “jQuery UI Theming,” in the new jQuery Cookbook, from O’Reilly Media. The chapter covers styling jQuery UI widgets with ThemeRoller, overriding layout and theme styles, applying themes to non-jQuery UI components, and referencing multiple themes on page. If you’re interested in mastering jQuery UI Theming for your own websites and applications, it’s the most thorough resource you’ll find on the topic. We highly recommend picking up a copy!

The jQuery Cookbook follows the format of other titles in O’Reilly’s popular Cookbook series, offering a range of problem/solution “recipes” from basic element queries to complex widget design patterns. O’Reilly provides the following description:

jQuery simplifies building rich, interactive web frontends. Getting started with this JavaScript library is easy, but it can take years to fully realize its breadth and depth; this cookbook shortens the learning curve considerably. With these recipes, you’ll learn patterns and practices from 19 leading developers who use jQuery for everything from integrating simple components into websites and applications to developing complex, high-performance user interfaces.

Each of the chapters in the book are authored by prominent contributors to the jQuery community. The authors are: Cody Lindley, James Padolsey, Ralph Whitbeck, Jonathan Sharp, Michael Geary, Scott González, Rebecca Murphey, Remy Sharp, Ariel Flesler, Brian Cherne, Jörn Zaefferer, Mike Hostetler, Nathan Smith, Richard D. Worth, Maggie Wachs, Scott Jehl, Todd Parker, Patty Toland, Rob Burns

The jQuery Cookbook is available in paperback on Amazon at the following URL: jQuery Cookbook (Animal Guide) (Paperback) or in both paperback and Ebook format from the O’Reilly website: jQuery Cookbook,

<p>The O’Reilly Cookbooks are great resources - I have used a number of them on various topics.&nbsp; Getting a chapter in the jQuery Cookbook is pretty impressive, and I’ve no doubt it’s a very useful reference.
