Web UI: too much jQuery?

Description

Hello,

Digging into the current transmission-web code one can see some very heavy usage of jQuery wrappers/utilities. Is such reliance on it really justified today? Much of what jQuery does can be accomplished just as easily with Web API. See this link for more information: http://blog.garstasio.com/you-dont-need-jquery

Rewriting code for Web API would remove extra layers of abstraction and improve JS performance. I would be happy to send in patches should such a transition be approved.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from 2.90+ to 2.90

If it would still support versions of web browsers released in say past 5 years, go for it. On Windows though, you'd have to support IE 7 (which seems to be the default in Vista).

If you want to do this, please create separate tickets for changes you'd like to make.

It was brought to my attention that IE 7 and IE 8 aren't supported by Microsoft anymore, so I guess we're good to go with IE 9+.
