Do you know jQuery removed from Bootstrap 5

Bootstrap has been using jQuery for more than 8 years but in Bootstrap 5 jQuery querying features will have to be done with pure or vanilla JavaScript code which will help with the file size or weight of the framework.

King is a King. A king has to retire from the post in his life; a king never dies, and so do jQuery. jQuery dominated the web back in the 90's to 2010's. Now, pure Vanilla JavaScript has evolved too much since. It was a good decision to drop jQuery which reduces the bundle size 👍

Yes, I known. I used JQuery for a long time, it was amazing. JQuery has transformed the Ethernet. Nowadays the pure javascript can do more things than on the past.

Yes, I'm waiting for any libraries like Datatables and Select2 gone vanilla js.
