- Code is indented with 4 space tabs, never spaces
- Double quotes are always used unless the string contains double quotes, such as with HTML
- Trailing semicolons are always used
- When multiple variables are being defined at the top of a function they should generally be combined into one
- Ternary operators are fine especially for string concatenation
- Performance should always be favored over readability for small snippets. i.e.
$(body).append($('<div></div>').attr("data-id", id.split("-")))instead of
var elm = $('<div></div>'), id = id.split("-"); elm.attr("data-id", id)....
