To build jQuery, you need to have the latest Node.js/npm and git 1.7 or later. Earlier versions might work, but are not supported. For Windows, you have to download and install git and Node.js. OS X users should install Homebrew. Once Homebrew is installed, run brew install git to install git, and brew install node to install Node.js. Linux/BSD users should use their appropriate package managers to install git and Node.js, or build from source if you swing that way. Easy-peasy. Special builds can be created that exclude subsets of jQuery functionality. This allows for smaller custom builds when the builder is certain that those parts of jQuery are not being used. For example, an app that only used JSONP for $.ajax() and did not need to calculate offsets or positions of elements could exclude the offset and ajax/xhr modules. Any module may be excluded except for core, and selector. To exclude a module, pass its path relative to the src folder (without the .js extension). Some example modules that can be excluded are: Note: Excluding Sizzle will also exclude all jQuery selector extensions (such as effects/animatedSelector and css/hiddenVisibleSelectors). The build process shows a message for each dependent module it excludes or includes. As an option, you can set the module name for jQuery's AMD definition. By default, it is set to "jquery", which plays nicely with plugins and third-party libraries, but there may be cases where you'd like to change this. Simply set the "amd" option: For questions or requests regarding custom builds, please start a thread on the Developing jQuery Core section of the forum. Due to the combinatorics and custom nature of these builds, they are not regularly tested in jQuery's unit test process. The non-Sizzle selector engine currently does not pass unit tests because it is missing too much essential functionality.

Recognizing Public Servants

2020 Public Service Week

Celebrated annually during the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week honors all of the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees.  It is time again to say ‘Thank You’.  We serve our nation in the areas of national and local security and safety, veteran care, medical advancement, technology and much more.  We keep the wheels turning in hundreds of agencies, providing important services to the American people. Particularly in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic, as government employees, we risk much more so that we continue to provide Americans with important services that are greatly needed.

Federally Employed Women celebrates the public servants who choose to make a personal impact for the benefit of others. The dedication shown in the day-to-day work and representation may be easy to overlook, but it has an impact on the lives of all citizens. Members of FEW, thank you for choosing to be a part of this mighty organization and for your public service. There is value in what you bring to the table every day and it is recognized for its enormity.   Job well done.  Thank you!
