As lots of developer, I use jQuery nearly all the time. It makes development quick and easy. However, sometimes I work on very simple build where it will be possible to avoid loading jQuery.
I will share here useful links to avoid using jQuery all the time when you don’t really need it.
No dependencies plugins
I love this website youmightnotneedjqueryplugins.com with some really good plugins (calendar, scrollbar, etc.)
Light alternative to jQuery
Just a start… I will add more in the future.
