Retiring jquery for these folks is a tall order. Considering most are probably using a mash of plugins that use jQuery, they might have to use it anyway.

jquery is still the finest library of helpers next to lodash IMHO. Take things like Ajax, throttle/defer, and memorize. This goes beyond templates, events and DOM manipulations.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
