Crosswalk vs ManifoldJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Crosswalk as "Replace Android’s default WebView with Crosswalk, a predictable web runtime for developing powerful Android and Cordova apps". Crosswalk is a web runtime for ambitious HTML5 applications. All the features of a modern browser, deep device integration and an API for adding native extensions. On the other hand, ManifoldJS is detailed as "Create mobile apps from websites". manifoldJS takes the meta-data about your site and generates native "hosted" apps. If the platform doesn't support hosted apps, we use Cordova to polyfill it. manifoldJS is based on the latest W3C Manifest working draft.

Crosswalk and ManifoldJS belong to "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category of the tech stack.

Crosswalk and ManifoldJS are both open source tools. It seems that Crosswalk with 2.17K GitHub stars and 569 forks on GitHub has more adoption than ManifoldJS with 1.55K GitHub stars and 132 GitHub forks.

            Apache Cordova
            Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
            PhoneGap
            PhoneGap is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.
