[Question] Why is jQuery downloaded as a dependency?

See original GitHub issue

Looking at the result of npm install bootstrap-vue, there is apparently a jQuery dependency downloaded as well.


The docs, however, state that bootstrap-vue do not require this library.


There is some illogic going on here. Either the docs or the library itself is wrong upon its dependencies. So which one is it?

@ghenry No no we don’t 😃) This is just because of BS bad packaging which explicitly requires jquery as a peer dep! I will add some notes to the documentation to clarify this.
