Why doesn't Jquery being used inside an Angular app

Hi all,

Are there any special reasons for preventing from using Jquery inside an Angular 2++ app?

Angular apps are written using components and has its own way of managing, traversing, and manipulating the DOM. Even if you were to shoehorn jQuery into an Angular app and get it to work, it could interfere with the way Angular works and cause wonky behavior. I can’t think of a single use for jQuery in an Angular app.
