Angular has these for DOM manipulation but I'm contemplating using jQuery for these functions: closest()/children().
So, Is there an angular function that is identical to jQuery's function closest() which basically just returns the element?
Are there any alternatives for these functions in Angular without resorting writing native JS/TS operations to achieve those things just like jQuery, which does the dirty work? Or is alright to proceed with jQuery (I'm not dealing with template manipulation anyway)? Thanks.
<div id="ample" #zero> <div id="xample" #first> <div #x> </div> <div #y> </div> </div> </div>
