Does the code still work? Thought jQ-1.9 removed support for custom event listening on anything but document window. Recommend approach taken by SPA author Mikowski or something else?

Re: [6.2.7] How to create custom events
Hello proebuck.

Yes, it's still possible to create custom events in jQuery.

Re: [6.2.7] How to create custom events
But the question was can you still listen to them on specific DOM nodes?
