The jQuery - YUI3 Rosetta Stone is a guide to idioms in YUI3 and jQuery, intended as an aid for developers who are familiar with one library and are interested in using or learning more about the other. It may also be helpful as a general cheat sheet for both libraries.
The Rosetta Stone was originally created by Carlos Bueno, and is now maintained by the YUI team and Paul Irish of the jQuery team.
This is a reference, not an evaluation or comparison of the libraries. If you have an opinion about which one is "better", that's great, but we don't want to hear it.
The Rosetta Stone is by no means complete or authoritative, so your contributions, bug reports, and suggestions are more than welcome.
Please report bugs via the GitHub issue tracker. Suggestions are welcome in the form of enhancement tickets or commit comments.
To contribute a patch, please fork the GitHub project, create a topic branch for your change, commit your change to the branch, and then send a GitHub pull request from your branch with a description of the change and why you think we should pick it up.
