Reminder: Many Javascript Libraries Are Included in Core

WordPress includes jQuery with coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. Most everyone knows this. But did you also know WordPress includes a great deal of other libraries for your use.

You should take the time to check the documentation on wp_enqueue_script().

But that list actually isn’t complete! For a complete list of registered files inspect `$GLOBALS[‘wp_scripts’]` in the admin UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing.. Registered scripts might change per requested page. You can also check out the massive amounts of files in wp-includes to see even more.

My point, though, is that 90% of the time, you don’t need ‘your own’ version of something. We have it.

Even datepicker folks (jquery-ui-datepicker).

Check if core works. If you call it right, most of the time it will.
