How about fuck off with your jQuery?

    Nice one - but reality isn't much better:

    The accepted and most upvoted answer looks like written by a die-hard code golfer.

    Converting jQuery to vanilla JS is usually pretty fucking easy.

    Nonetheless if the solution works you probably got the concept od how to solve the problem at hand.

    But if you don't want it, why be cajoled into using it.

    I love stuff at vanillajstoolkit.com

    Nowadays you don't need jquery, neither framework :)

    I hopu more people would try this, instead of diving to framework 99%

    @theMaintainer Never said it was difficult but still a massive pain nonetheless.

    @danielstaleiny I don't use jQuery in most project anymore (I only needed a few parts of it so I build my own library for those things to still make it easy).

    I do sometimes (depending on circumstances) use a framework though... primarily EmberJS (since that is the only one I've tried that doesn't make me wanna commit warcrimes).
