AngularJS vs Helix: What are the differences?

Developers describe AngularJS as "Superheroic JavaScript MVW Framework". 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. On the other hand, Helix is detailed as "Rust and Ruby, Without the Glue". Helix allows you to write Ruby classes in Rust without having to write the glue code yourself.

AngularJS and Helix are primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" and "Language Extensions" tools respectively.

AngularJS and Helix are both open source tools. It seems that AngularJS with 59.6K GitHub stars and 28.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Helix with 1.84K GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks.

        JavaScript
        JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
        Angular 2
        Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
        React
        Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
        Node.js
        Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
        jQuery
        jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

        AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. With AngularJS, designers can use HTML as the template language and it allows for the extension of HTML's syntax to convey the application's components effortlessly. Angular makes much of the code you would otherwise have to write completely redundant. We can use Angular to build any kind of app, taking advantage of features like: Two-way binding, templating, RESTful api handling, modularization, AJAX handling, dependency injection, etc

        All of our frontend code is on AngularJS. Directives, controllers, and services really help in organizing code in order to keep things maintainable, and two-way binding makes data input easy. The large ecosystem of modules for directives is fantastic, too.

        When ever I need heavy user client side apps this is my tool of choice. There are a ton of JS frameworks out there, picked this one because of philosophy they are trying to put out there and great community. Two way data binding FTW!

        The front end was built on an Angular template supplied by the client. We leveraged Angular's flexibility and speed to delivered complex matrices of data quickly and with great finesse.

        We use Angular.js to build our front-end framework known as Frontkit, so our apps can get started faster with reliable, interactive components.
