re: Who still regularly uses jQuery? VIEW POST


I use it on a legacy client application. It still works and there isn't a huge benefit from trying to replace it. There are much bigger issues to address with the application before trying to replace jQuery. I try to promote using plain JavaScript on newer development in the project but some developers are more familiar with jQuery, which is okay. Even though JavaScript has caught up to jQuery, I still think jQuery's syntax and functions are more convenient to use.


Precisely my situation. There are many, many other things I would want to improve in the application I am working on before I even think about touching something that although old, still works just fine


Im glad you are taking this practical approach. I think you should always prioritise improving the product functionality for the user over refactoring the code for the sake of it. Keep up the good work
