context needed[edit]

I feel like the "made necessary by" bit needs a "say's who". But the bigger issue is that this page is entirely without the context of the framework's relation to the larger question of mobile approaches. Responsive design is the elephant in the room. Maybe a subsection devoted to comparing jQuery Mobile to media-query-driven responsive design which contains information about when each might be more appropriate would help out. It seems like at this date that responsive css is frequently more cost-effective than maintaining separate sites... but not always. It would be good to outline some of the use cases for when people find a separate site (driven by, for example, jQuery Mobile) of use. -- (talk) 16:10, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Newbie question: I wanted to link the term Worklight to a future new entry on Worklight software ( But the term Worklight is already taken by another entry. What do I do?

hyperbole, and then some[edit]


jQuery Mobile provides a powerful theming framework


Powerful journalism or factual encyclopedia? Let's choose.

Find an informative adjective for YAF (yet another framework) or drop it. Tap.

Of course, " made necessary by " the existence of rival technology is not the same as " made attractive by " the problem of doing apps for diverse hardware and operating systems.

Think of your surgeon explaining that this second procedure is made necessary by the mistakes of that first surgeon ... and you may see my point.

One good exercise is to listen to old footage of IBM extolling OS/2 while Microsoft extolled NT while who held the rights to unix ?

Maintenance and rating of JavaScript articles[edit]

Concerning editing and maintaining JavaScript-related articles...


If you are interested in collaborating on JavaScript articles or would like to see where you could help, stop by Wikipedia:WikiProject JavaScript and feel free to add your name to the participants list. Both editors and programmers are welcome.

Where to list JavaScript articles[edit]

We've found over 300 JavaScript-related articles so far. If you come across any others, please add them to that list.

User scripts[edit]

The WikiProject is also taking on the organization of the Wikipedia community's user script support pages. If you are interested in helping to organize information on the user scripts (or are curious about what we are up to), let us know!

If you have need for a user script that does not yet exist, or you have a cool idea for a user script or gadget, you can post it at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests. And if you are a JavaScript programmer, that's a great place to find tasks if you are bored.

How to report JavaScript articles in need of attention[edit]

If you come across a JavaScript article desperately in need of editor attention, and it's beyond your ability to handle, you can add it to our list of JavaScript-related articles that need attention.

Rating JavaScript articles[edit]

At the top of the talk page of most every JavaScript-related article is a WikiProject JavaScript template where you can record the quality class and importance of the article. Doing so will help the community track the stage of completion and watch the highest priority articles more closely.
