Do we need (a discussion about) jQuery?

Author: matthias  en jquery  javascript  react  comment  opinion

Discussions about the role of jQuery bubble up these days. Paradigms change, not at least triggered by concepts (re-)introduced with React, Flux and redux. Should we try to avoid jQuery and direct DOM manipulation if possible? I'm not sure, but I want to share some thoughts I had reading a thread titled "Stop say You Don't Need jQuery" in the JS group of linked.in.

React hates me: "Overcontrolled" components

Author: matthias  en javascript  react  flux  state  checkbox  dom  html  events  prevendefault

More accurately: The DOM hates me. I'm currently hacking a lot of React (with fun) and thought that strictly bypassing the default handlers for user input element onChange events in favor for a fully controlled value flow through React components' state and props might be a good idea. Actually, it is not.
