How can I remove jQuery from my website? I don’t need it and I’m trying to keep things to a bare minimum.
I think you can’t remove it. Webflow is using jQuery for some things. Maybe @PixelGeek will explain more.
Today that would not be an option. It may be in the future. Insight on this during the last Live Q&A with Vlad Magdalin at the playhead shared below. 25:00
JQuery effect on site speed is very very minimal (before body) + on second page and so on cached.
I am in a similar position to @beneverard. We have a Single Page Application and our designer used WebFlow to build out the page and add a few animations.
I realize this isn’t your standard use case but adding jQuery to an existing codebase is a hard sell. Whole SPAs are built with less code than jQuery’s 87k. It would be nice if we could have a minimal IX2 engine we could add in without needing jQuery or the extra WebFlow code.
I would be happy to help with any of this kind of code work (for the IX2 engine specifically), I don’t know if IX2 is open source or not but I don’t see it on WebFlows Github account.
As a heads up in the video dropping jQuery is discussed starting at about 48:50.
Would very much like to see this feature implemented.
Jquery also stops us from being able to port our Webflow sites into a React environment.
If we could have the full interactions without the Jquery, it would open up an entire world of possibilities.
Please drop the JQuery without losing functionality.
Am on this too. I have a project am working that is going to be port into a react/vue environment. I have to go ahead and use React Studio which is not intuitive to work with. Webflow with purely css animations and basic HTML structure will go a long. An option on export remove query and dependents will help.
