Discussion on: Anybody still working with jQuery?

I use jQuery and pure javascript both, depending on project and need.

I'd never recommend using React or Vue or any other library that tries to arm-wrestle open web standards. React is fancy, no doubt, but the aim of these corporation backed projects is to hurt and stifle making of the web standards. Call it names and displace: simplicity, accessibility and openness of the web with a view that supports a closed garden of their own.

Also, React/Vue projects are terrible at accessibility, maintainability and are expensive to maintain.
