Note on jQuery

Internally, the API uses jQuery library for DOM manipulation, AJAX and other browser-sensitive operations. The library is included inside the API in a way it doesn’t pollute the global scope, possibly interfering with any other javascript libraries you may want to use.
If you however choose to make use of the included jQuery library, you can expose it using the exposeJQuery method.

var $ = jQuery = giscloud.exposeJQuery();
