Jquery Iterating over list of jQuery elements

When you need to iterate over the list of jQuery elements.

Consider this DOM structure:

<div class="container">
 <div class="red one">RED 1 Info</div>
 <div class="red two">RED 2 Info</div>
 <div class="red three">RED 3 Info</div>

To print the text present in all the div elements with a class of red:

$(".red").each(function(key, ele){
 var text = $(ele).text();

Tip: key is the index of the element we're currently iterating over, within its parent. ele is the HTML element, so we can create a jQuery object from it using $() or jQuery(), like so: $(ele). After, we can call any jQuery method on the object, like css() or hide() etc. In this example, we just pull the text of the object.
