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.

I’m an international strategist and impact investment professional with a track record of supporting social enterprise growth, private sector development and startup ecosystems, especially across emerging markets in Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.

My passion is inclusive economic development, especially for Afrodescendant and indigenous communities and women and girls. Driven by this passion, I’ve spent the past 15+ years spanning international development, strategy consulting and impact investment work experience with World Bank, International Finance Corporation, Ernst & Young, United Nations, Shell Foundation and various USAID projects.
In light of the importance of actual lived experience to deliver effective development interventions, I’ve spent 8+ years experience living in the field in emerging markets and also gathered on-the-ground work experience across 18 countries/ 5 continents, including Nigeria, UAE, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Jordan, Mozambique, Angola, Tanzania, UK, Qatar, and others. I have also translated these emerging market experiences to work on economic development for my community in the USA.

I have firsthand entrepreneurial/ venture building experience in both emerging and developed markets, as well as an Oxford MBA (Skoll Scholar) in Strategy/Entrepreneurship plus an NYU MPA in International Policy & Mngmt and a BA Magna cum Laude from Spelman College (USA’s leading historically Black college).
I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
