Dust vs RactiveJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dust as "Asynchronous templates for the browser and node.js". Dust is a JavaScript templating engine designed to provide a clean separation between presentation and logic without sacrificing ease of use. It is particularly well-suited for asynchronous and streaming applications. On the other hand, RactiveJS is detailed as "Next-generation DOM manipulation". Ractive was originally created at theguardian.com to produce news applications. Ractive takes your Mustache templates and transforms them into a lightweight representation of the DOM – then when your data changes, it intelligently updates the real DOM.

Dust and RactiveJS can be primarily classified as "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools.

Dust and RactiveJS are both open source tools. RactiveJS with 5.67K GitHub stars and 440 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dust with 1.48K GitHub stars and 136 GitHub forks.

        Handlebars.js
        Handlebars.js is an extension to the Mustache templating language created by Chris Wanstrath. Handlebars.js and Mustache are both logicless templating languages that keep the view and the code separated like we all know they should be.
        Mustache
        Mustache is a logic-less template syntax. It can be used for HTML, config files, source code - anything. It works by expanding tags in a template using values provided in a hash or object. We call it "logic-less" because there are no if statements, else clauses, or for loops. Instead there are only tags. Some tags are replaced with a value, some nothing, and others a series of values.
        Pug
        This project was formerly known as "Jade." Pug is a high performance template engine heavily influenced by Haml and implemented with JavaScript for Node.js and browsers.
