Ember.js vs Ionic: What are the differences?

What is Ember.js? 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.

What is Ionic? A beautiful front-end framework for developing cross-platform apps with web technologies like Angular and React. Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile and desktop-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Use with Angular, React, Vue, or plain JavaScript.

Ember.js and Ionic are primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" and "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools respectively.

"Elegant", "Quick to develop" and "Great mvc" are the key factors why developers consider Ember.js; whereas "Allows for rapid prototyping", "Hybrid mobile" and "It's angularjs" are the primary reasons why Ionic is favored.

Ember.js and Ionic are both open source tools. It seems that Ionic with 38.4K GitHub stars and 13.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Ember.js with 21K GitHub stars and 4.18K GitHub forks.

Sellsuki, Edify, and eTobb are some of the popular companies that use Ionic, whereas Ember.js is used by Twitch, Vine Labs, and thoughtbot. Ionic has a broader approval, being mentioned in 392 company stacks & 350 developers stacks; compared to Ember.js, which is listed in 293 company stacks and 75 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Ember.js and Ionic?
Vue.js
It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
AngularJS
AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
Backbone.js
Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
Angular 2
Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
Aurelia
Aurelia is a next generation JavaScript client framework that leverages simple conventions to empower your creativity.
