jQuery Is Better Than React

I’ve cleaned up way too many spaghettified jQuery projects to give your argument much credence. Sure, it has its place, primarily to give static pages some sort of functionality. As a sole ‘thing’ to build your front end dev stack on, however, it is certainly not. Nice thing about React, Angular, Vue is they enforce good project structure and design on you so you can think about big picture, abstracting and sharing code, and more. Kinda hard to abstract jQuery in a sane way…
