It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.

        It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
        Backbone.js
        Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
        Angular 2
        It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
        Ember.js
