Ask DN: Custom jQuery download Builder?

over 6 years ago from , Web Designer

Is there a site or app that can create custom jQuery builds similar to the jQuery UI download builder?

I'm aware this can be accomplished using grunt, but would prefer a gui for the task.

The following site is on the right track, but lacks the option to exclude individual methods. Plus it hasn't been updated for some time...

    I don't know of a website that does this for you, but you can do it easily enough on your own. Check out the documentation on their Github page: https://github.com/jquery/jquery#how-to-build-your-own-jquery

    Know that jQuery 2.x is only about 34k over the wire when compressed and minified. Most of that is core functionality, so you may not save a lot by going through the trouble.

      Yeah iirc about 40% of the code is for the selector functionality alone.

      Considering how small the file size difference is you might be better off loading it via a CDN opposed to hosting your own build.
