comment Advantages of using pure JavaScript over JQuery
@LocalPCGuy definitely some good points. This post was (exactly!) 2 years ago, and things have certainly changed in the js ecosystem since then. For instance, I personally use browserify and small modules instead of any globally namespaced library at all. However, I think the basic premise is still true, which is that for many (most?) cases, a kitchen sink library is rarely necessary. I'd put it to most devs to make sure they properly justify the size cost of libraries before deciding to use it just cause it's easier than being specific about what you need.
