Why does jQuery Mobile need a web server?
I'm not getting what's different about jQuery Mobile vs regular jQuery in that it needs to be created/tested on an actual web server. I'm assuming it's because it requires assistance from a back-end language, but that doesn't sound right really... Can someone please explain this?
If you don't have access to an online web-server, a localhost like WAMP or XAMPP will do the trick for working locally.
Thanks Mark, I knew there had to be a good reason. AJAX must be it!
