* Touch events **Zepto** is a minimalist **JavaScript library for modern browsers** with a largely **jQuery-compatible API**. _If you use jQuery, you already know how to use Zepto._ While 100% jQuery coverage is not a design goal, the **APIs provided match their jQuery counterparts**. The goal is to have a ~5-10k modular library that **downloads and executes fast**, with a **familiar and versatile API**, so you can **concentrate on getting stuff done**. Zepto is open source software and is released under the developer and business-friendly MIT license https://github.com/madrobby/zepto/blob/master/MIT-LICENSE.
