Discussion on: What is that one tool/stack/framework that you have no interest with despite the popularity?

I learned jQuery, but never bothered with it in a project. Most of jQuery is redundant. Traversing the DOM is simple now in vanilla JavaScript. Animations can be handled by CSS3. AJAX is simplified now in the promise-based fetch.

So what's the point?

I tried learning PHP, but I found the language inconsistent and wonky. I didn't enjoy working in it, so I decided to not continue.
