Chaplin vs KnockoutJS: What are the differences?

Chaplin: HTML5 application architecture using Backbone.js. Chaplin addresses Backbone’s limitations by providing a lightweight and flexible structure that features well-proven design patterns and best practices. Chaplin empowers you to quickly develop scalable single-page web applications; allowing you to focus on designing and developing the underlying functionality in your web application; KnockoutJS: Knockout makes it easier to create rich, responsive UIs with JavaScript. Knockout is a JavaScript MVVM (a modern variant of MVC) library that makes it easier to create rich, desktop-like user interfaces with JavaScript and HTML. It uses observers to make your UI automatically stay in sync with an underlying data model, along with a powerful and extensible set of declarative bindings to enable productive development.

Chaplin and KnockoutJS belong to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Chaplin and KnockoutJS are both open source tools. It seems that KnockoutJS with 9.54K GitHub stars and 1.54K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Chaplin with 2.92K GitHub stars and 247 GitHub forks.

What is Knockout?

It is a JavaScript library that helps you to create rich, responsive display and editor user interfaces with a clean underlying data model.
