Feed for Drafts (Plugin)

If you develop in and for WordPress, it's advisable to use a library of the core and a Plugin for the the library with the desired effect.

Same for theme and Plugin authors. If you use a function of WordPress to implement JavaScript, you will have less complications and the compatibility between Plugins is much higher.
I will show you an example with Thickbox how to use JavaScript from the core.
