jQuery Developer Frameworks for SharePoint

with 2 comments

If you are into developing SharePoint solutions using jQuery, you should really have a look at the following GREAT CodePlex projects. Both projects have been developed by real experts in the SharePoint & jQuery field 🙂

jPoint – Developed by a team lead by Will Lawrence (@willhlaw)

jPoint is an open source javascript API and script deployment framework for Sharepoint. It leverages the speed and agility of jQuery to manipulate Sharepoint forms and pages, communicate to Sharepoint webservices, and to build jPart plugins.

jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services – Developed by Marc D Anderson (@sympmarc)

This is a jQuery library which abstracts SharePoint’s Web Services and makes them easier to use. It also includes functions which use the various Web Service operations to provide more useful (and cool) capabilities. It works entirely client side and requires no server install.

  1. I recently did interviews with these guys and published it on the @SPDevWIki too 😉

  2. Thanks for the recognition, Jaap. I’m not the only brains behind this project, just trying to direct the awesome talent that has decided to help me out. We hope to improve the API documentation in the upcoming weeks (working on a new format right now – I saw the jQuery team changed to a WordPress blog format because they were not getting enough useful contributors editing the wiki version of their API) and get a few posts I’ve been promising to Mark Miller on End User SharePoint. After that, I want to see the community come together and really contribute to the codeplex projects. I’d like to see a true community effort pull together around the jPoint project to create a really awesome API on top of SharePoint.
