Touch-Optimized Web Framework

jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet and desktop devices. It is built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation, and offers Ajax navigation with page transitions, touch events, and various widgets. Its lightweight code is built with progressive enhancement, and has a flexible, easily themeable design.


jQuery Mobile is a project of the jQuery Foundation. It is completely open source and is one of the most popular Mobile frameworks thanks to the efforts of all contributors.

And we are never done! Check out roadmap to see what the jQuery Mobile team is planning to work on.


The Mobile team is having its weekly meeting at Thursday 2 PM (EST) on IRC in the #jquery-meeting channel. Meeting notes are posted on http://meetings.jquery.org/category/mobile/ after each meeting.


The jQuery Mobile community provides a friendly, helpful environment when you need development advice. The best way to get help is to post on the forum or use the IRC support channel: #jquery on irc.freenode.net.
