My two cents: I'd go with regular JavaScript or maybe even Vue.js. You can import Vue as a file just like you would jQuery.

I made an interactive page with jQuery a few years back and was absolutely kicking myself for not using Vue after I realized how much simpler it would have been. 😐

Thank so much Monica for your comments. I've found jQuery is making my life a little bit easier when it comes to selecting elements, add animations, and working with events overall.

Also thanks for recommending Vue, I will be taking a look into it.

I agree vanilla JS as jquery is a dead rabbit..
vue or react is a choice you can make..

though due to a school thing you may need to take the easy way out which is jquery as your teacher wants that... chicken or an egg? be the future!

Be the difference! (svelte lol)

Hello Aubrey, I think React is the way to go, I have read a lot of good reviews about that framework.

Funny thing, I was reading this article React vs Svelte on which the author built the same To-Do app using both framework, very interesting reading.

Have a nice day.
