not sure if jquery really facilitates this, will have to take a look but it would be nicer to have button.appendTo(something) vs button.el.appendTo(something)

If u mean to expose a helper for appending ur button element onto another element.

I just mean inheriting from the jQuery prototype so I don't have to duplicate any of those methods and dont have to make .el public api

Looking at some of your code, .appendTo would already be available.

this.el = $(html)
this.el = $(this.template)

The $.fn is just really an alias the jquery's prototype. I'm not sure how you might shoe horn your api together with jQuery.

$.fn.button = function (option) {
    return this.each(function () {
        new Button(...)
