What is Inferno?

Inferno is an isomorphic library for building high-performance user interfaces, which is crucial when targeting mobile devices. Unlike typical virtual DOM libraries like React, Mithril, Virtual-dom, Snabbdom and Om, Inferno uses techniques to separate static and dynamic content. This allows Inferno to only "diff" renders that have dynamic values.
Inferno is a tool in the Javascript UI Libraries category of a tech stack.
Inferno is an open source tool with 14.2K GitHub stars and 648 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Inferno's open source repository on GitHub
