Does Angular 7 NEED jQuery?

Does Angular 7 NEED jQuery?

I will be starting a new project which includes:

KendoUI
Angular 7
jQuery

but my experiences with Angular 4 showed me that when you think you need jQuery, you have not looked hard enough at solving the problem using the features of Angular.

But I see this association between Angular, Kendo UI and jQuery.

How do these all fit together?

Curious.

Thanks,

This is a good phrase to live by with Angular

To answer your question, no, it does not. The only time you would use jQuery is if you are using a library that requires jQuery and the only time you do that is if you can't find an angular plugin / directive that does the same thing.

jQuery (lite version) used to be part of Angular in v 1.x - it was removed in V2.

In other words, jQuery is only required if you are using something that has jQuery as a dependency.
