I’ve never seen the point of ‘jQuery replacements’ like Zepto: isn’t the point of jQuery to maintain compatibility with older browsers? As most ‘light jQuery alternatives’ drop the compatibility for better bundle sizes…

…what’s the point of using it at all?

I can see this isn’t just a jQuery API, which is nice :)

jQuery is really easy to develop with if you don’t want to use a full JavaScript framework like Angular or Vue, so legacy compatibility isn’t the only reason.

Also, Bootstrap uses jQuery.

Really easy to develop at first, yes.

Also, the new iteration of Bootstrap doesn’t use jQuery IIRC.

For very simple projects, I still like using it.

Also good to hear Bootstrap is dropping it as a dependency

Agreed! I was glad when I saw the announcement.

I mean, nothing against jQuery, but having fewer dependencies is a good thing for web-based projects, where all that code needs to be transferred to the user.
