Is jQuery Still Relevant?
What is jQuery?
Why Should I Care?
Ok but its 2018 shouldn’t I just use React or Vue?
React and Vue are great tools for creating interfaces but they are not the best choice for all projects. Sometimes you just need to add a small amount of interactivity to a site. With jQuery you can add a script tag to your page and go. No complex tooling required.
But reading the jQuery documentation and looking at examples is a great way to learn whats possible. If there is a way to manipulate the DOM jQuery already has the functionality. Its a great source of inspiration.
