With DOM Enlightenment, you’ll learn how to manipulate HTML more efficiently by scripting the Document Object Model (DOM) without a DOM library. Using code examples in cookbook style, author Cody Lindley (jQuery Cookbook) walks you through modern DOM concepts to demonstrate how various node objects work.
Over the past decade, developers have buried the DOM under frameworks that simplify its use. This book brings these tools back into focus, using concepts and code native to modern browsers. You’ll understand the role jQuery plays in DOM scripting, and learn how to use the DOM directly in applications for mobile devices and specific browsers that require low overhead.
