Hey guys and gals,
So I disappeared for a few weeks because I’ve been learning ASP.NET MVC, data modeling, databases, and other back-end stuff… But I’m back doing some front-end now and I’m still far, far, more experienced with C# than I am with jQuery/JS. I’ve just started using some jQuery to pull some JSON from my website’s API… I’m now learning and tooling around with client-side programming so as to make my websites faster and use less server-side resources. Having said this, I’m finding my jQuery to be UUUUUUGGGGGGLLLLLLYYYYYYYY compared to my C#. Like for some reason my Visual Studio kind of turns it into a garbled mess, at least compared to what it does with my C#. I’m not sure if it always looks like this and it’s just me not being used to it yet, but even though I wrote the code myself and know what it is doing, the way it is formatted confuses the heck out of me when I look at it and I feel like way down the line, I could misunderstand it looking like this.
Again, maybe this is just how jQuery looks and since I’m a noob, I just need to get more used to it. One last thing I was thinking is maybe it has to do with my Visual Studio’s syntax highlighting… Maybe it supports C# better than jQuery??? But check it out and let me know what you think:
