jQuery was also a hype back in 2000's. React is almost a decade old now, and I will no longer call it a hype.

I do understand the use of jQuery for legacy projects, if it aint broke, don't replace it.
But, when I see someone use jQuery to build a new project in 2020, I just see it as a refusal to learn a superior modern technology. There's just no excuse for it. It's the same reason new houses and buildings are built using new practices, while old houses are just maintained.
