What ?

domQ is an absurdly small jQuery alternative for modern browsers (IE11+) that provides jQuery-style syntax for manipulating the DOM. Utilizing modern browser features to minimize the codebase, developers can use the familiar chainable methods at a fraction of the file size. 100% feature parity with jQuery isn't a goal, but domQ comes helpfully close, covering most day to day use cases.

Why ?

I was very bored with jquery script and wanted to try something else🙈.
Well as a web developer i wanted to move out from jQuery and use Vanilla JS. When i realized i had to write multiple lines of code for a single action thats when i decided to create a lightweight javascript library that can do most things that jQuery can.

Get domQ from CloudFlare or jsDelivr and use it like this:


  1. 1.
    domQ : jsDelivr
  2. 2.
    domQ + Dizzle : jsDelivr
<script src="[email protected]/dist/bundled/domq.umd.min.js"></script>
domQ(function () {
domQ('html').addClass ( 'domq-works' );
domQ('<footer>Appended with domQ</footer>').appendTo ( document.body );
domQ is also available through npm as the @domq-js/core package:
npm install --save @domq-js/core
That you can then use like this:
import domq from "@domq-js/core";
domq(function () {
domq('html').addClass ( 'domq-works' );
domq('<footer>Appended with domQ</footer>').appendTo ( document.body );
