D3.js vs jQuery: What are the differences?
"Beautiful visualizations", "Data-driven" and "Svg" are the key factors why developers consider D3.js; whereas "Cross-browser", "Dom manipulation" and "Power" are the primary reasons why jQuery is favored.
D3.js and jQuery are both open source tools. D3.js with 85.8K GitHub stars and 21K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than jQuery with 51.9K GitHub stars and 18.3K GitHub forks.
Uber Technologies, Twitter, and reddit are some of the popular companies that use jQuery, whereas D3.js is used by Coursera, Square, and Zalando. jQuery has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4051 company stacks & 2607 developers stacks; compared to D3.js, which is listed in 531 company stacks and 91 developer stacks.
I have made an extended effort to drop frameworks completely if they are not actually needed. While I still use JS Frameworks like Vue, Angular and React ( if I have too ), I see far too often devs / teams deciding to build a single page site entirely in a framework, rather than just using HTML, CSS and a little JS.
I personally feel it's important to know when a framework is a good solution, and maybe when it's overkill.
The project is a web gadget previously made using vanilla script and JQuery, It is a part of the "Quicktext" platform and offers an in-app live & customizable messaging widget. We made that remake with React eco-system and Typescript and we're so far happy with results. We gained tons of TS features, React scaling & re-usabilities capabilities and much more!
What do you think?
I've an eCommerce platform building using Laravel, MySQL and jQuery. It's working good and if anyone become interested, I just deploy the entire source cod e in environment / Hosting. This is not a good model of course. Because everyone ask for small or large amount of change and I had to do this. Imagine when there will be 100 separate deploy and I had to manage 100 separate source. So How do I make my system architecture so that I'll have a core / base source code. To make any any change / update on specific deployment, it will be theme / plugin / extension based . Also if I introduce an API layer then I could handle the Web, Mobile App and POS as well ? Is the API should be part of source code or a individual single API and all the deployment will use that API ?

jQuery has been the basis of our front end JS for a number of years. The key part for us was that the amount of code saved by using jQuery methods, as opposed to writing out cross-browser compatible alternatives made it a no brainer. In recent years we've had to be clever in how we deliver jQuery on the websites, to ensure it's not render blocking and improve client-side performance but it's still a vital library.
In process of Learning Technics. Cross-browser Compatibility: handles a lot of infuriating cross-browser issues . used to make some widgets and effects: jQuery plugin repository.
jQuery allows to easily do DOM scripting (i.e. HTML elements manipulation and event handling). using jquery under MVC webapps. Studing to know more
jQuery is only used in small amounts, primarily for animations and UIs, but it is included in the WSC, so we felt like not including it here would be kind of cheating. jQuery also almost makes ajax-requests a pleasure to work with, so ... you got that point, jQuery.
D3.js is an amazing library for doing visualizations, charts/graphs, etc. We are experimenting with it for metric visualizations, marketing graphs/charts, and basically anywhere we could use this amazing library.
Creating online data visualizations to illustrate your potential or interact in new ways with your users. Including transistions, animations and graphs.
Charts, charts, charts. Data visualizations are a great way to communicate information to people who need to know it, quickly and concisely.
We use D3 for creating custom charts that aren't available in off-the-shelf libraries
