Where to find help for jsPlumb


Due to the pop­ular­ity of my art­icles on jsPlumb, I am receiv­ing more and more requests for help with jsPlumb prob­lems. As hon­oured as I am by your requests, and as much as I would love to help each and every one of you with a com­plete solu­tion, I am unfor­tu­nately unable to do so. A fam­ous Chinese pro­verb is applic­able here: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a life­time.” In this art­icle, I want to teach you how to fish by show­ing four resources that you can use to get more and bet­ter help on jsPlumb faster than you could ever get from me directly.
