More Benefits of Using jQuery
- jQuery ensures cross-browser compatibility. Using jQuery not only saves you lots of time and effort but saves you a ton of headaches since the code is compatible with all the major browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome. You, therefore, don’t have to worry about dependency issues.
How Does Artificatory Help jQuery?
The challenge of finding, downloading, and keeping track of all your jQuery packages and their dependencies has since been taken care of by package management tools.
However, as web developers increasingly make extensive usage of both open-source, in-house proprietary libraries, and other binary components to cut costs and improve code quality, it can be extremely difficult to find something specific from the multitude of packages in a system.
Other challenges that arise include ensuring security and access control, tracking binary versions to reproduce builds, ensuring quick and consistent access to remote artifacts, offline access to packages, and sharing proprietary code and binaries with other developers in a team.
With the emergence of artifactory, you no longer have to worry about these issues. Think of artifactory as an intermediary between front-end web developers and the external repositories that you need for your work on a regular basis. In the event of a network issue and you can’t gain access to a repository, artifactory caches your packages locally in a remote repository, granting you reliable and consistent access so you can continue to work.
