This excercise will focus on copy/pasting code from sources and tweaking it to get it to behave the way we want it to.
First, let’s make a button that toggles a class on a specific div.
You'll often come across free to use and open-source plugins/code in spaces like github. The clarity and usefulness of the documentation will vary—but over time and with practice, parsing and understanding how to implement found code will only get faster and easier over time.
Before we jump into following the set up instructions on the github page, we'll need to prepare our document a bit.
Download the latest “compressed production build” from here.
Copy the jQuery .js file to your website folder.
Next, we’ll create a link to it in our html document. We’ll place it at the bottom of the body:
Next, create a new file and name it something like “functions.js”. This will be the js file that we will add our specific functions to.
Create a link to it in the same way that we linked the “jquery.js” file, but make sure it is below the jQuery link.
Now, we’ll just follow the install instructions on jQuery.marquee to set everything up!
