Durandal vs Ember.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Durandal as "Single Page Apps Done Right". Durandal is a cross-device, cross-platform client framework written in JS and designed to make Single Page Applications (SPAs) easy to create and maintain. On the other hand, Ember.js is detailed as "A JavaScript framework for creating ambitious web apps". Ember.js is a JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; Ember.js does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.

Durandal and Ember.js can be categorized as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" tools.

"Easy to learn" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Durandal, while over 121 developers mention "Elegant" as the leading cause for choosing Ember.js.

Durandal and Ember.js are both open source tools. It seems that Ember.js with 21.1K GitHub stars and 4.17K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Durandal with 1.78K GitHub stars and 391 GitHub forks.
