I’ve just been making everything a delegate function for years.
jQuery itself is deprecated - actually, even obsolete.
devRant: PHP is obsolete.
PHP: But, I run 70% of back ends.
devRant: jQuery is obsolute.
jQuery: But, I run 78% of front ends.
Meanwhile, the people who always tell me this... the front end React devs, are collectively powering less than half a percent.
And of that half percent, only half of those React sites actually work decently.
So, while I appreciate the excitement you kids have at your new toy train, I'm just going to go ahead and keep working in the technologies that pay the bills.
@HiFiWiFiSciFi Most of jQuery in the wild is jQuery 1, completely outdated. That's because jQuery 2 dropped support for old IE, which was the point of jQuery.
I'm not even arguing for JS frameworks, just that jQuery is pointless today because native JS offers all relevant functionality. The only exception is corporate intranet shit that still runs only on IE and possibly even ActiveX.
