What is Flux?

Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

What is Zepto?

While 100% jQuery coverage is not a design goal, the APIs provided match their jQuery counterparts. The goal is to have a ~5-10k modular library that downloads and executes fast, with a familiar and versatile API, so you can concentrate on getting stuff done.

      What are some alternatives to Flux, jQuery, and Zepto?
      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.

      How developers use Flux, jQuery, and Zepto

      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.

      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.

      "Idiot proof MVC" using transactional pub/sub between models, views, and controllers to establish reliable one-way data flow. Combines well with Polymer web components to create a modular, loosely coupled front-end architecture.

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

      I'll consider Zepto if jQuery is overkill for the amount of JavaScript work I'll be needing for the specific project.

      For the occasional lightweight JQuery alternative.
