Anyone that tells you "jquery is stupid" is either a pro or obviously hasn't tried to do drag and drop with the html5 api.

What a pain in the fucking ass bunch of boilerplate bullshit.

    Too much of a footprint for just drag and drop. There are loads of codepens up for nabbin'

    I've had a project that relied on excessive drag and drop processes. There were hundreds of hundreds objects to drag, and hundreds of hundreds cells to drop. Jquery UI is a turtle on that situation. Because all of drags and drops rely on event listeners and consume too much RAM. But HTML5 is not like that.

    @M1sf3t turned off autocorrect b/c i got tired of it being *way* off on really obvious words.

    tiny keyboard and the above now mean my posts are guaranteed to be 40% more retarded.

    Jquery was amazing at doing what it was supposed to do and today it’s still pretty great.

    There are other smaller, maybe nicer ways to do certain things.

    But without jquery kicking off the entire industry. We would still be in the dark ages

    @Fast-Nop no, jquery is the new hotness. it's becoming popular again.

    @Wisecrack It will never become popular again because:

    1) It manipulates the DOM directly which derails into the typical jQuery spaghetti for complex applications. That's why JS frameworks were created in the first place.

    2) Old IE support has become so irrelevant that even jQuery ditched it years ago.

    3) Most jQuery usage is either easier, shorter and with better performance in plain contemporary JS, or isn't JS' job (e.g. animations), or doesn't belong on a production website to begin with.

    1. lies
    the dom is the source of all life and light in this world

    2. slander. jquery appears to be rising fast again. some people using react are now using jquery left and right. Google might even be rewriting it's homepage in jquery.

    3. heresy. what, did you only test it in one browser or something?

    I know, im terrible! Here you are making a valuable post and I jyst shitpost with my tongue in my cheek.
