Draggable JS vs jQuery UI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Draggable JS as "A lightweight, responsive, modern drag-and-drop library (by Shopify)". Draggable is a modular drag & drop library, allowing you to start small and build up with the features you need. At its most basic, Draggable gives you drag & drop functionality, fast DOM reordering, accessible markup, and a bundle of events to grab on to. On the other hand, jQuery UI is detailed as "Curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library". Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.

Draggable JS and jQuery UI can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Draggable JS and jQuery UI are both open source tools. Draggable JS with 13.2K GitHub stars and 694 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than jQuery UI with 10.7K GitHub stars and 5.06K GitHub forks.
