Ampersand.js vs Ember.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ampersand.js as "A highly modular, loosely coupled, non-frameworky framework for building advanced JavaScript apps". We <3 Backbone.js at &yet. It’s brilliantly simple and solves many common problems in developing clientside applications. But we missed the focused simplicity of tiny modules in node-land. We wanted something similar in style and philosophy, but that fully embraced tiny modules, npm, and browserify. Ampersand.js is a well-defined approach to combining (get it?) a series of intentionally tiny modules. On the other hand, Ember.js is detailed as "A JavaScript framework for creating ambitious web apps". Ember.js is a JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; Ember.js does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.

Ampersand.js and Ember.js belong to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider Ampersand.js over the competitors, whereas "Elegant" was stated as the key factor in picking Ember.js.

Ampersand.js and Ember.js are both open source tools. Ember.js with 21.1K GitHub stars and 4.17K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Ampersand.js with 818 GitHub stars and 52 GitHub forks.

      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. 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.
      Vue.js
      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.
