jQuery Mobile Reference Guide

This post is more than 2 years old.

I've mentioned before that Andy Mathews and myself are working on a jQuery Mobile book for Pakt. As I work through the book and carefully re-read the jQuery Mobile docs it occurs to me that one of the big things missing (besides, you know, a version you can download ;) is a reference guide. jQuery Mobile makes heavy use of data attributes to enable automatic markup of your content. There's so many options though it is hard to keep track. I decided to open up a Google Doc and start working on such a guide. It lists the data attribute, it's purpose, where it's used, and shows an example. I'm only about 1/3rd of the way through the docs and I'm looking for feedback on the format and possibly some volunteers to help wrap it up. I also added a new sheet for the random CSS classes jQuery Mobile uses from time to time as well.

Here is the current version as an embed. When I feel like the doc is "complete" enough I'll publish it as a PDF.

Helpful? Waste of time?

As I read the "First Look", I started building something similar.
It's got a lot of work to do, but my goal is to pour everything I learn about the syntax of jQuery Mobile into it.
Along with filters and sorting...

Nice to know I'm not alone in seeing a need for this. ;)

Well, looks like the jQuery Mobile guys added one themselves.
