Discussion on: How often do you maintain the code that's not a part of your favorite stack?

The stallion coder does not deal with legacy code. I rewrite it every other year in my favorite stack.

PHP: it is still one of my favorites.
jQuery: rewrite in RE:DOM or Preact upon sight.

Sad truth: the most popular page on my website is written in jQuery 1.x version.
The page looks completely different from everything else on my website.
The app, made in 2010, is so complicated that I don't have the stomach to rewrite it yet.
