jQuery UI is a collection of GUI widgets, animated visual effects, and themes implemented with jQuery (a JavaScript library), Cascading Style Sheets, and HTML.[4] According to JavaScript analytics service, Libscore, jQuery UI was used on over 197,000 of the top one million websites, making it the second most popular JavaScript library.[citation needed] Notable users were Pinterest, PayPal, IMDb, The Huffington Post, and Netflix.

Both jQuery and jQuery UI are free and open-source software distributed by the jQuery Foundation under the MIT License; jQuery UI was first published in September 2007.[3][5]


As of the 1.11.4 release, [6] interactions such as draggable/droppable and sortable are supported. jQueryUI comes with fully themeable widgets using a consolidated, coordinated theme mechanism,[7] such as Autocomplete, Datepicker, ProgressBar, Sliders, and more. Effects include color animations, class toggling.


// Make the element with id "draggable" draggable
$(function () {
<div id="draggable">
	<p>Drag me around</p>

This makes the div with the ID "draggable" draggable by the user's mouse.
