Pryme8 Posted January 13, 2017 Share Posted January 13, 2017 So I was kinda doing a little bit of work here, and I was helping my buddy out with implementing a js lib that was dependent on jQuery (booooo that lib) and it dawned on me, that often in the playground examples and in a bunch of other examples and docs jQuery methods are the ones being used. Is this just external or is this built into BJS? Are any of our core things dependent on it or is it just for simplification of script with interacting with the engine? Then I was wondering why is that? jQuery is point blank useless (personal oppinion), yeah its cool and saves time on some things but real production code would scrap it in a heart beat for Vanilla JS, especially when one looks at the OP/s. Point of the post: 1 - Are any core elements of the engine reliant on jQuery? 2 - Is there any particular reason stopping someone (like me) from going back and dropping all references of jQuery out from the docs and converting it to Vanilla? 3 - Am I just mistaken on my observation of BJS and jQuery, with my concerns not being for myself but once again thinking about more low level devs? I mean thats like throwing 3-4 API's at them when they really only need one. TS, jQuery, BJS, webGL... like whoa this is prolly a question for @Deltakosh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
