jQuery Boilerplate is a skeletal framework for easy jQuery plugin development.
It is truly object-oriented, it implements public and private methods as well as public and private properties, making it the ideal candidate for when building both simple and complex jQuery plugins.
It does not adhere to the suggestions made by the jQuery documentation regarding Plugins/Authoring and by doing so it provides better performance and memory usage by not creating multiple instances of itself and attaching them to the target DOM elements.
I am a big fan of such boilerplate due to the fact they simplify web development works and let beginners get started quickly. You can also try the following boilerplate for your next development project.
