jQWidgets is a software framework with widgets (graphical control elements), themes, input validation, drag & drop plug-in, data adapters, built-in WAI-ARIA accessibility, internationalization and MVVM support. It is built on the open standards and technologies HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery.[3] This library is used for developing responsive web and mobile applications.[4] Some developers consider jQWidgets one of the top alternatives to the open-source jQuery UI.[5][6][7]

Some notable users of jQWidgets include Green Card Program USA, the French citizen portal Vie-publique.fr,[8] the University of Iowa[9] and the University of Maryland.[10] The framework is also used in NSB/AppStudio.[11]

jQWidgets has been integrated with a variety of other frameworks and web technologies, such as Vue.js,[12] React,[13] Angular 2+, AngularJS, TypeScript, Apache Cordova, WordPress, Joomla, Bootstrap and Knockout.[14]

As of version 5.0.0, jQWidgets also supports Custom elements (a functionality part of Web Components).[1][15]

Features[edit]

jQWidgets features more than 60 widgets and plug-ins.[14] Some of the most used of them[16] are:

Smart HTML Elements[edit]

In 2018, JQWidgets Ltd released Smart HTML Elements, a framework with widgets which are represented by Custom HTML elements (a functionality part of Web Components). The framework is built with HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript and is not dependent on any third-party software. It supports modern web browsers and mobile devices.[25][26]

Smart HTML Elements also provides arbitrary-precision arithmetic and mathematical functions and DateTime precision up to a yoctosecond (10−24 second).[25]

Smart HTML Elements has been featured on the website webcomponents.org, which showcases reusable web UI components.[27]
