jQuery-JSONP is a compact (1.8kB minified), yet feature-packed, alternative solution to jQuery's implementation of JSONP.


jQuery-JSONP is released under the MIT license.


You can download jQuery-JSONP here (full text and minified versions available).


jQuery-JSONP features:

  • error recovery in case of network failure or ill-formed JSON responses,
  • precise control over callback naming and how it is transmitted in the URL,
  • multiple requests with the same callback name running concurrently,
  • two caching mechanisms (browser-based and page based),
  • the possibility to manually abort the request just like any other AJAX request,
  • a timeout mechanism.

jQuery-JSONP publishes a $.ajax()-like function called $.jsonp(): similarity ensures programmers get up-to-speed easily.

For instance, as of version 2.3.0, $.jsonp() returns a promise when used in conjunction with jQuery 1.5+.


jQuery-JSONP has been tested and runs within all major browsers, namely:

  • Internet Explorer 6+
  • Firefox 2+
  • Chrome 1+
  • Safari 3+
  • Opera 9+

jQuery-JSONP has also been tested with jQuery 1.3.x up to 1.7.x
