4. Building Custom Scrollbars > Designer, meet plugins

Designer, meet plugins

We've already talked about how programmers solve the same problems over and over again. It's these common tasks that jQuery simplifies so that we can accomplish these tasks with a minimum amount of code. But what about the tasks that are only somewhat common, like the desire for beautiful custom scrollbars that work?

That's where the jQuery community becomes important. Developers in the jQuery community are able to write code that extends the functionality of jQuery to simplify tasks that are only somewhat common. These bits of code are called Plugins and they are used in conjunction with the jQuery library to make coding complex interactions, widgets, and effects as simple as using the features already built into jQuery.
