jQuery Downloading

Compressed and uncompressed copies of jQuery files are available. Uncompressed files are best used during development or debugging. Compressed files save bandwidth and improve performance in production environments. You can also download sourcemap files to use when debugging with compressed files. Users do not need a map file to run jQuery. Map files only improve the debugger experience for developers.

Use below link to download jQuery, to locally download these files, right-click the link and select “Save as” from the menu and save it on your desired location for your use.
