How To Insert Jquery In Html

jQuery is a popular and powerful JavaScript library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, and animating. It’s easy to get started with, and in this blog post, we’ll show you how to insert jQuery in your HTML file.

Step 1: Add the jQuery Library to your Project

First, you need to include the jQuery library in your HTML file. There are two ways to do this:

  • Download the jQuery Library: You can download the jQuery library from the official jQuery website and save it in your project folder. Then, include it in your HTML file using a script tag. For example:
    <script src="path/to/your/jquery-3.6.0.min.js"></script>
  • Use a CDN (Content Delivery Network): Alternatively, you can use a CDN like Google or Microsoft to include the jQuery library. This is the most common method and it ensures that you’re always using the latest version of jQuery. To do this, add the following script tag to your HTML file:
    <script src=""></script>

Step 2: Write your jQuery Code

Now that you have the jQuery library included in your project, you can start writing jQuery code. It’s important to wrap your jQuery code inside a $(document).ready() function to ensure that the HTML document is fully loaded before your code is executed. Here’s an example:

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

Step 3: Use jQuery Selectors and Methods

With jQuery, you can easily select HTML elements and perform various actions on them. To select an element, simply use the $() function and pass in a CSS-style selector. For example:

  • Select by ID: To select an element with a specific ID, use the “#” symbol followed by the ID:
  • Select by Class: To select elements with a specific class, use the “.” symbol followed by the class name:

Once you’ve selected an element, you can perform various actions on it using jQuery methods. For example, to hide an element, you’d use the .hide() method:


Example: Using jQuery to Create a Simple Click Event

Let’s create a simple example that demonstrates how to use jQuery to create a click event. In this example, when a button is clicked, an alert will be displayed.

HTML Code:

        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
        <title>jQuery Click Event Example</title>
        <button id="myButton">Click me!</button>

        <script src=""></script>
            $(document).ready(function() {
                $("#myButton").click(function() {
                    alert("Button clicked!");

That’s it! You’ve successfully inserted jQuery into your HTML file and created a simple click event. Now you can start exploring the many powerful features that jQuery has to offer.
