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 an open source tool with 13.8K GitHub stars and 633 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Inferno's open source repository on GitHub
