Hermes Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Hermes?
Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes.
It’s a collection of superfast tests or detects as we like to call them which run as your web page loads, then you can use the results to tailor the experience to the user. It tells you what HTML, CSS and JavaScript features the user’s browser has to offer.
Babel will turn your ES6+ code into ES5 friendly code, so you can start using it right now without waiting for browser support.
It is a safer way to build robust front-end web applications. With it, typos and type-errors are immediately caught and shown to you in your editor, without even needing to compile your code. Refactor any field or method with ease, with the confidence that if you mess it up the editor will tell you immediately
This allows applications and libraries originally designed to run as standard executables to be integrated into client side web applications.
