    Oh how i loved jq.^^

    It was sick. But now it can safely be seen as a truckload of shit, seen what vanilla is able to do now.

    @vincetrot I'm ashamed to say it took me a while to get the joke. For a brief moment I thought I had misinterpreted the concept of vanilla javascript. 😅

    Performance is a double edged sword. Do you mean runtime performance, the thing that doesn't matter until you run into bottlenecks usually created by single functions? Or do you mean developer efficiency, the thing your company pays for and which is business critical most of the time?

    Optimisation almost always comes at a cost. Runtime performance often scales orthogonal to development speed.
