Flight vs jQuery: What are the differences?

What is Flight? A component-based, event-driven JavaScript framework from Twitter. Flight is distinct from existing frameworks in that it doesn't prescribe or provide any particular approach to rendering or providing data to a web application. It's agnostic to how requests are routed, which templating language you use or even if you render your HTML on the client or the server. While some web frameworks encourage developers to arrange their code around a prescribed model layer, Flight is organized around the existing DOM model with functionality mapped directly to DOM nodes.

What is jQuery? The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library. jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

Flight and jQuery belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Flight and jQuery are both open source tools. jQuery with 51.9K GitHub stars and 18.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Flight with 6.64K GitHub stars and 588 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, jQuery has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4049 company stacks & 2607 developers stacks; compared to Flight, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

        jQuery UI
        Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.
        React
        Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
        AngularJS
        AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
        Vue.js
        It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
        Select2
        It gives you a customizable select box with support for searching, tagging, remote data sets, infinite scrolling, and many other highly used options. It comes with support for RTL environments, searching with diacritics and over 40 languages built-in.

        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.

        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.

        I don't use javascript, I use jquery....well I know it does not make sense, but I just want to stress how important it is. let's rephase it: whenever I use javascript, I use jquery. when you look at any js file of mine, 90% is jqery api.

        Used jQuery for dom manipulations. Another great feature used was its deferred() function with promise to avoid callback hell.
