Not many people recommend the usage of JQuery in production web apps because most of the time you are basically adding a large file without using it to its full extent.

This is interesting and thanks, but most people use tools not because they will be using it to its full extent but because of their familiarity and easy flow.

That may be true but the architecture of JQuery makes it immune to modern optimization techniques such as tree shaking which can lower the performance of your application.
