All the people fucking hating jQuery all the time are so funny 😂 Why do you think it is so bad? I am a reasonable person if you have great arguments I might switch to only vanilla js. In my opinion its great.

    Some javascript developers thought that, too, and just built some of the most used features into new specifications! =D

    Just take a look at querySelector or querySelectorAll...

    I personally prefer vanilla js because i won't use most features that jQuery provides and it seems like a waste of resources to me. Even if it's only 4ms loading time ;)

    jQuery got me interested in programming, jQuery gave me the job. I am forever thankful to jQuery.

    jQuery is just one of those things that some people had issues with a long time ago and claimed that they hated it, and then new people came along, saw the hate and just tagged along hating it. And those new haters are now spreading hate but they don’t really know why.

    Like most stuff people claim they hate around here, for example I’m sure a lot of people claiming to hate PHP haven’t really used PHP for any big project.

    I don’t really see a problem with jQuery. It offers great functionality and you can cherrypick the stuff you need. What’s bad about it?

    I’d also be interested in hearing why jQuery is bad.
