My JavaScript Cheatsheet

A couple of times per year, I have to work on something that requires me to write some JavaScript. When I do, I have to reacquaint myself with the language by skimming through JavaScript: The Good Parts and finding some good online reference documentation.

In an effort to reduce the time needed to do this next time, I'm recording the little things that I ran across that I didn't remember or wished I could have found faster. So this is my own personal refresher for JavaScript. It may not help you at all.

JacksOrBetter as a Web App

A little over a year ago, I created my first iPhone app, JacksOrBetter. As an exercise in learning CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery, I've created a web-based version of JacksOrBetter.

Quick-and-Dirty Guide to QUnit

I'm playing around with JavaScript in my spare time, and have started creating a web app. As I usually do, particularly when learning something new, I am using a test-driven development approach. I looked at a few JavaScript unit-testing frameworks, and decided to go with QUnit, the testing framework used by the jQuery project.

QUnit isn't too hard to set up or use, but my unfamiliarity with JavaScript, jQuery, and related things meant it took a little more work than it should have. A few out-of-date QUnit tutorials on the web made things worse. So, here is a quick-and-dirty QUnit tutorial that might be helpful for others who are the same boat that I was in.
