jQuery and WinRT


As part of this WinRT comparison I’m doing, I next need to recreate my apps in html+js.

This is my first WinRT app I’ve written in html+js and right off the mark I hit a problem with the WinRT sandbox. These days I won’t write a web app without jQuery it’s just awesome. so I wanted it in my app.

My first instinct was to use Nuget to bring down jQuery for me, but alas no Nuget extension that I could find for vs11, so next easiest step was to use the CDN. Sad smile doesn’t work.

So I go to jQuery.com, download it, and then use add the local script, now it all works.


hopefully this post might save someone a few minutes of head scratching.
