Hopefully, this is a pretty straightforward question for someone.
I’m just diving into plugin development (definitely for personal use until I wrap my head around it better), and am using Doug Neiner’s Starter tool http://starter.pixelgraphics.us/ that Chris recommends.
What I am not totally clear on is this:
// Access to jQuery and DOM versions of element
base.$el = $(el);
base.el = el;
What do those actually look like? How are they different? Why would I call one over the other?
Sorry I don’t have a very good example to use for illustration…
