Understanding jQLite or jQuery Lite
jQLite is a subset of jQuery that is built directly into AngularJS. jQLite provides you all the useful features of jQuery. In fact it provides you limited features or functions of jQuery.
By default AngularJS use jQLite which is the subset of jQuery. If you want to use jQuery then simply load the jQuery library before loading the AngularJS. By doing so, Angular will skip jQLite and will started to use jQuery library.
Here is a table of supported jQuery methods by jQLite.
Accessing jQLite or jQuery with AngularJS
jQuery lite or the full jQuery library if available, can be accessed via the AngularJS code by using the element() function in AngularJS. Basically, angular.element() is an alias for the jQuery function i.e.
angular.element() === jQuery() === $()
