In our project, there is a different functionality when one Dollar sign used $() in Chrome console vs two Dollar signs $$(), besides the known difference that $$() return an array an $() return the first element.
For example, selector for specific element, with one dollar and two dollar queries:
$$('.my-class[my-attribute=trump]') //not work
There are a few shortcuts for selecting elements. These save you valuable time when compared to typing out their standard counterparts.
$() Returns the first element that matches the specified CSS selector. It is a shortcut for document.querySelector().
$$() Returns an array of all the elements that match the specified CSS selector. This is an alias for document.querySelectorAll()
$x() Returns an array of elements that match the specified XPath.
When you use
$), the result is an element or
null. When you use
$$, the result isn't an element but an
Array which can be easily iterated over. This differs from the native
querySelectorAll where it returns a
NodeList which is slightly harder to go over all the entries.
Regarding the quote: of course it works the same. See:
Conclusion: It's useless to quote
trump. You might also end insane.
