How To Get Jquery In Html

jQuery is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries used to add interactivity and dynamic content to your websites. It simplifies various tasks, such as DOM manipulation, event handling, and animation, making web development easier and more efficient. In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps to include jQuery in your HTML file.

Step 1: Download jQuery

First, you need to download the jQuery library. You can either get it from the official jQuery website or include it from a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Option 1: Download from the official jQuery website

  • Go to the jQuery website.
  • Click on the “Download jQuery” button.
  • Choose the version you want to download (compressed or uncompressed).
  • Save the file in your project folder.

Option 2: Include it from a CDN

Using a CDN has several advantages, such as faster loading times and better caching. There are various CDNs available that host jQuery, such as Google and Microsoft. You can include the library in your HTML file by simply adding a script tag with the appropriate src URL.

Step 2: Include the jQuery library in your HTML file

To include the jQuery library in your HTML file, you need to add a <script> tag either in the <head> or at the end of the <body> section of your HTML file.

Option 1: Include the downloaded file

If you downloaded the jQuery library from the official website, use the following script tag:

<script src="path/to/your/jquery-3.6.0.min.js"></script>

Replace “path/to/your” with the actual path to the folder where you saved the jQuery file.

Option 2: Include the CDN URL

If you want to include jQuery from a CDN, use the appropriate script tag. For example, to include jQuery from Google’s CDN, use the following script tag:

<script src=""></script>

Step 3: Start using jQuery in your project

Once you have included the jQuery library in your HTML file, you can start using jQuery functions in your JavaScript code. To ensure that the jQuery library is fully loaded before you start using it, wrap your jQuery code inside a $(document).ready() function, like this:

$(document).ready(function() {
    // Your jQuery code goes here

Now you’re all set to start using jQuery to enhance your website with interactive features and dynamic content.
