Decisions about jQuery, jQuery UI, and Kendo UI

I have made an extended effort to drop frameworks completely if they are not actually needed. While I still use JS Frameworks like Vue, Angular and React ( if I have too ), I see far too often devs / teams deciding to build a single page site entirely in a framework, rather than just using HTML, CSS and a little JS.

I personally feel it's important to know when a framework is a good solution, and maybe when it's overkill.

Web developer at Quicktext | 0 upvote 路 15.1K views

The project is a web gadget previously made using vanilla script and JQuery, It is a part of the "Quicktext" platform and offers an in-app live & customizable messaging widget. We made that remake with React eco-system and Typescript and we're so far happy with results. We gained tons of TS features, React scaling & re-usabilities capabilities and much more!

What do you think?

I've an eCommerce platform building using Laravel, MySQL and jQuery. It's working good and if anyone become interested, I just deploy the entire source cod e in environment / Hosting. This is not a good model of course. Because everyone ask for small or large amount of change and I had to do this. Imagine when there will be 100 separate deploy and I had to manage 100 separate source. So How do I make my system architecture so that I'll have a core / base source code. To make any any change / update on specific deployment, it will be theme / plugin / extension based . Also if I introduce an API layer then I could handle the Web, Mobile App and POS as well ? Is the API should be part of source code or a individual single API and all the deployment will use that API ?

    What are some alternatives to jQuery, jQuery UI, and Kendo UI?
    Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
    JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
    Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
    AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML鈥檚 syntax to express your application鈥檚 components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
    jQuery Mobile
    jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet and desktop devices.

    How developers use jQuery, jQuery UI, and Kendo UI
    Andrew Gatenby uses

    jQuery has been the basis of our front end JS for a number of years. The key part for us was that the amount of code saved by using jQuery methods, as opposed to writing out cross-browser compatible alternatives made it a no brainer. In recent years we've had to be clever in how we deliver jQuery on the websites, to ensure it's not render blocking and improve client-side performance but it's still a vital library.

    Ana Phi Sancho uses

    In process of Learning Technics. Cross-browser Compatibility: handles a lot of infuriating cross-browser issues . used to make some widgets and effects: jQuery plugin repository.

    jQuery allows to easily do DOM scripting (i.e. HTML elements manipulation and event handling). using jquery under MVC webapps. Studing to know more

    Tony Manso uses
    jQuery UI

    I only use the modal dialog thingy in jQuery UI, which displays when the player is not currently playing. I'm not big on the DOM and so it would have taken me a lifetime to figure out how to do this on my own, as compared to the 5 minutes to install jQuery UI and invoke it.

    Scrayos UG (haftungsbeschr盲nkt) uses

    jQuery is only used in small amounts, primarily for animations and UIs, but it is included in the WSC, so we felt like not including it here would be kind of cheating. jQuery also almost makes ajax-requests a pleasure to work with, so ... you got that point, jQuery.

    Lawrence Cheuk uses

    I don't use javascript, I use jquery....well I know it does not make sense, but I just want to stress how important it is. let's rephase it: whenever I use javascript, I use jquery. when you look at any js file of mine, 90% is jqery api.

    Tarun Singh uses

    Used jQuery for dom manipulations. Another great feature used was its deferred() function with promise to avoid callback hell.

    John Galbraith uses
    jQuery UI

    The JQuery libraries are embedded in my home page that allow my site to be viewed the way I want them to.

    Romans Malinovskis uses
    jQuery UI

    We fully integrate it into the framework and also supply a nice theme.

    Nicholas Alexander uses

    Front end form capabilities and animations, drag and drop, etc.
