Blueprint vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Developers describe Blueprint as "A React UI toolkit for the web". Blueprint is a React UI toolkit for the web. It is optimized for building complex, data-dense web interfaces for desktop applications. If you rely heavily on mobile interactions and are looking for a mobile-first UI toolkit, this may not be for you. On the other hand, Zepto is detailed as "Minimalist JavaScript library for modern browsers, with a jQuery-compatible API". While 100% jQuery coverage is not a design goal, the APIs provided match their jQuery counterparts. The goal is to have a ~5-10k modular library that downloads and executes fast, with a familiar and versatile API, so you can concentrate on getting stuff done.

Blueprint and Zepto belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

"Documentation is very well done" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Blueprint, while over 2 developers mention "Lightweight " as the leading cause for choosing Zepto.

Blueprint and Zepto are both open source tools. Zepto with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Blueprint with 14.3K GitHub stars and 1.26K GitHub forks.

      Blueprint has awesome SPA components and a fantastic icon set that you can use to build a very rich UI for code authoring applications.

      I'll consider Zepto if jQuery is overkill for the amount of JavaScript work I'll be needing for the specific project.

      For the occasional lightweight JQuery alternative.
