Nevertheless, developers will still be able to use bootstrap 5 with or without jquery.

We’re dropping jquery from regular Javascript. The cat is out of the bag-We’re dropping our largest client-side dependency for regular Javascript. Similar to the Hugo move, we’ve been working on this for a long time and have a pull request in progress and near completion.


This got a mixed response and opinions from web developers in development communities. It Spurred controversy for effacing Jquery from bootstrap 5. A few of the responses of web developers for removal of jquery are as follows.

Bootstrap 5 Columns & Rows

Bootstrap concept offered 12-columns system is not going to vanish and will be available in Bootstrap 5 also. Web Dev can still use Grid and layout columns in Bootstrap 5.

Bootstrap rows and columns provide the most efficient solution to issues of different screen sizes. The main focus of the change in v5 is still responsiveness, though in recent bootstrap versions the development is focused mostly on improving performance and reducing the loading time.
