How To Include Jquery In Html

jQuery is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries that makes tasks such as HTML document traversal, manipulation, event handling, and animation much simpler with an easy-to-use API. In this blog post, we will show you how to include jQuery in your HTML and start using its power in your projects.

Step 1: Download jQuery

First, you need to have a copy of the jQuery library. You can either download it from the jQuery website or use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) link. For this tutorial, we will be using the CDN link provided by Google.

Step 2: Include jQuery in Your HTML

After you have the jQuery library, you need to include it in your HTML file. To do this, add the following script tag to the head section of your HTML file:

    <script src=""></script>

This script tag includes the jQuery library from Google’s CDN. By placing it in the head of your HTML file, it ensures that jQuery is loaded before any other scripts that may depend on it.

Step 3: Verify jQuery is Loaded

To ensure jQuery is loaded and ready to be used in your project, you can add the following script after the script tag that includes jQuery:

        $(document).ready(function() {
            alert("jQuery is loaded and ready to use!");

This script will display an alert box with the message “jQuery is loaded and ready to use!” once the document is ready and jQuery is successfully loaded. If you see this alert box when you load your HTML file in a browser, then jQuery is working as expected.


Now you know how to include jQuery in your HTML file and verify that it is loaded and ready to use. With this powerful library at your disposal, you can easily create rich and dynamic web applications. Happy coding!
