Is there any easy way in Stack Overflow to filter out all solutions that involve jQuery. Due to licensing restrictions I only want to view solutions that use pure JavaScript.

    Yes, you can search by tags. And try to find the answer you need. I fyou don't find the answer post a new quation and specify you want Vanilla JS – Sergio Oct 13 '13 at 14:48

    I suspect you're mistaken about licensing restrictions. The MIT license is extremely liberal. – Croad Langshan Oct 13 '13 at 15:02

    Search for [javascript] -jquery is:q – brasofilo Oct 13 '13 at 16:24

Yes, you can search text and filter by tags and try to find the answer you need.

  1. To look for a tag use: [tagName]
  2. Too exclude a tag use the minus before it: -[tagName]

If you don't find the answer you are looking for, post a new question and specify you want Vanilla JS in the solution.

In the right upper corner you can find a search field, if you use [javascript] you will get postes tagged javascript. You can also combine like [javascript] for loop.

Another way is to click the tags on the right column of Stackoverflow.

    -1 not enough jquery – Lix Oct 13 '13 at 16:34
  • I didn't down vote, but without explaining -[jquery], this answer is near useless. jQuery questions are also tagged as JavaScript. Searching for [javascript] will give as many jQuery answers as non-jQuery. – Matt Oct 13 '13 at 21:47
  • @Matt, good point. Added that info, beside the link to the whole adv srch page. – Sergio Oct 13 '13 at 21:58
