Hello all ,

I wake up this morning and this is the first thing which pops up on my subscription news feed.jquery considered harmful. I feel the article is kinda misleading and gimmicky in nature. I would like to hear your opinion on this : )

P.S: I have no clue what she's talking about when she says lock-in. That's a very poor argument IMO.

"I got up this morning and looked out the window. What happened next was astounding!"

In other words: yeah, sensationalized click-bait.

And just to address the notion that "all this is available" argument, I have two words: event delegation.

But yeah... I read that article and my jaw dropped. It includes a list of four others article about not needing jQuery -- number 3 is shocking.

For the humor-impaired, those comments were meant as sarcasm, running with the idea of sensationalized click-bait..

Yeah, but I wrote the book(s) because I like jQuery, not the other way around.
