From the author of Conclusion


It may seem daunting to think that you need to understand HTML5 and jQuery to use the jQuery Mobile framework. Thankfully, the framework is built in a way that supports developers with different skill levels. You don't necessarily need to know HTML5 and jQuery, as the framework provides a template for HTML5 that you can download directly from, and jQuery is only accessible to those developers who want to use it.

The only thing that's absolutely necessary is to understand how to use data- attributes, as they are the basis for adding any widget to a web page without using jQuery. Dialog windows, popups, and buttons are just a few of the widgets that use data- attributes. Visit to find a complete list with samples of how to use each in your next mobile application.
