Discussion on: Hating jQuery doesn't make you cool

There's nothing wrong with that. I personally use React for most of my current projects because the kinds of apps I'm building are a bad fit for jQuery.

I think that jQuery has a sweet spot where it's a really good fit: it feels best suited for building interactivity into 5-15 components on an otherwise static site. With less interactivity than that, Vanilla JS may make more sense. When you start having more than 20 interactive components, frameworks like React, Vue and Svelte make a lot of sense.
