cell vs Zepto: What are the differences?
Some of the features offered by cell are:
- Self contained - each element is its own universe (context) with its own variables and functions
- Self driving - each element communicates with outside world via stateless function calls. This means each cell can survive on its own and plug into anything with zero overhead/footprint.
- No API - cell is all about how you structure your logic and not about learning how to use some proprietary API.
On the other hand, Zepto provides the following key features:
- zepto - Core module
- contains most methods
- event - Event handling via on() & off()
cell 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 cell with 1.55K GitHub stars and 103 GitHub forks.
