Joomla Extension: jQuery Easy

Published › April 6, 2014 0 Comments


This plugin is meant to clean and prepare front and back end for the use of jQuery, alongside the Mootools libraries.

What it does out-of-the box

  • calls jQuery and jQuery UI libraries from the Google CDN (with or without protocol) – but you can do it locally as well,
  • places jQuery libraries after MooTools calls for perfect compatibility,
  • adds the noConflict() code alongside the jQuery library call,
  • strips out extra jQuery and jQuery UI libraries, including the noConflict() calls added by other modules or plugins,
  • lets you choose jQuery UI basic styling or custom theme.

What you can tweak

  • disable MooTools libraries tentatively in the frontend,
  • enable or disable the plugin in specific portions of the site, from template to single page,
  • use reporting to get feedback on what the plugin engine has done,
  • add or remove scripts and stylesheets,
  • strip blank lines left by the modifications made to the page,
  • prevent some libraries to be stripped out,
  • modify the way the engine works by default (do not add or remove noConflict() code…),
