Which should I use jQuery vs VueJS

I’ve recently started watching VueJS as everyone has been saying it’s easier than jQuery( I watched some course on that as well). However I’ve been trying to build a testing application and hit some problems I couldn’t resolve using VueJS.

So my question is, is it okay to continue watching VueJS or point my time into learning jQuery?

Hi @Remdore,

As you most probably are aware, they do the same thing with some differences. With jQuery being available for more than 10 years around, it’s certainly proved it’s worth while VueJS is kinda new to the world however rightfully so has been gaining more and more fame for it’s speed and easiness of doing things.

I’ll recommend you to read this article of Schot.IO about Jquery and Vuejs :

Here is a glimpse of it:

When to use jQuery jQuery can be used for multiple things. A lot of libraries and plugins require it because you can do simple things like alter an input’s value or get a div’s content to create amazing slideshows/galleries and wonderful animations.

When to use Vue.js Vue is suitable for small projects where you just want to add a little bit of reactivity, submit a form with AJAX, show the user a modal, display the value of an input as the user is typing, or many other similarly straightforward things. It’s scalable and also fantastic for huge project. This is why it’s referred to as the progressive framework.
