Drop jQuery and jQueryUI in favor of ECMAScript?
« on: April 18, 2020, 01:45:57 am »
More and more developers are moving away from jQuery and jQueryUI in favor of native Javascript and ECMAScript.

Modern browsers can now support more powerful functions in ECMAScript which leaves jQuery as an obsolete library, it was handy in the past, but now is a bottleneck and a performance burden.

pqgrid can indeed be implemented in native javascript without writing even a single line of jQuery.

Please check this jsfiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/7gopeybf/ and let me know if you still have any doubts.
