Nemokosch do yall have a JS framework you like or have experience with? 16:07
I concluded that the JS code of the new site (the autocomplete feature of search, in particular) is too much spaghetti for me to work with it 16:08
and if I'm rewriting it, perhaps options other than jQuery can also be considered 16:09

patrickb Nemokosch: In my experience is THW price one pays for using a framework in the JS world quite high: added complexity in the build pipeline, during debugging and - with most frameworks - a rather high churn leaving you with an old version sooner than you wish. 18:46
So in general I recommend to try to stay vanilla if feasible then use the simplest framework fitting the bill. 18:47

coleman +1 for vanilla JS to start with, or at least start with non-SPA (single page application) JS 21:03

Nemokosch It definitely won't be SPA, I don't think we should just ditch the whole Cro-oriented architecture 21:49
There are two motives I'm coming from 21:50
1. the current search.js implementation (based on jQuery with a widget) is, sorry to say, horrible. Hard to reason about, hard to change, demotivating to work with. 21:53
2. I'm also not fond of the idea to write a similar categorized auto-completion feature from scratch in vanilla JS. If somebody has (a decent) one, I have nothing against it. 21:54
I might still like that idea more than to keep it as it is now but I would be really happy to use a lightweight framework with better defaults or documentation than this jQuery UI widget 21:56
or even just rewrite it with this widget in a saner way
