I really enjoyed using it, but have not seen it used on a project, as of late. My last web development job used Kendo UI, and I do not recall using jQuery. It was a legacy project, but does that mean no developer ever decided to use jQuery.
- Did Kendo UI provide a substitute query method for DOM elements, making jQuery not needed?
- Are projects today using less jQuery? If so, what is the substitute?
- What options are there for a normal .NET Framework website?
- What about Angular? Does it go well with Angular?
Yes. jQuery is still a widely used library, and it is likely to stay that way for a log time. It looks like it has taken a slight curve downward in the last year or so, but I don’t think you have to worry about it being “dead” anytime soon. Source from BuiltWith.
The real question you should always ask yourself when choosing programming languages and frameworks is not really “is it popular” but “is it the right tool for my project?”
