jQuery math finally solved

Web designers have long struggled with some of the more advanced aspects of computation and mathematics. Sometime ago, a Stack Overflow question asked

I’ve got a number in my JavaScript variable! Now how do I add another number to it? Please

A few well meaning answers point to using jQuery as the obvious solution. However, after a in depth search, I couldn’t find any actual jQuery plugins to do the calculations!

Well, there is a new jQuery plugin in town that aims to solve the problem of arithmetic in JavaScript: jMath!

It is incredibly easy to use in your code:

The plugin accepts the following operators:

  • ‘+’ (addition)
  • ‘-‘ (subtraction)
  • ‘*’ (multiplication)
  • ‘/’ (division)

And looking to add more in the future.

Hope that this helps in your development. Thanks!
