A glorious return to Vanilla JS

Posted 2 years ago by endian

How many of you are making a return to vanilla JS when writing functionality scripts (not UI stuff like when you use Vue.js)?

JQuery and Mootools were favorites of mine in the old days. They really helped with browser compatibility issues with methods like extend(). Now that browsers are more powerful, more standard compliant, and that javascript has been enhanced, these JS libraires seem less and less useful.

If feels amazing to finish a 500 line library in Vanilla JS that has no dependencies. Makes for extremely portable and reusable code.

Coding for the web is becoming more fun as our tools are bettered. It's such a joy.
