@DavidLGoldberg I think a lot of things was moved off jQuery, text editor, workspace, tabs, etc. Myself, I’ve updated the minimap and my color highlight package to take advantage of the model/view provider mechanism now available in Atom, so yes things are moving toward a no-jQuery world.
BTW, I take the opportunity offered by this discussion to point to my small libs atom-utils where I’ve just added a events delegation mixin that provides the same mechanism as
jQuery.on wen called with a selector, but with a native implementation and the use of disposable.
I would like to extend this lib with other useful mixin/helpers for atom (maybe some visibility helpers for DOM element for instance), so if anyone have a specific need, some tricks to share, it’ll be a good thing we start aggregating all the ideas/concerns so that everyone doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel.
