Ember.js vs Sails.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ember.js 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. On the other hand, Sails.js is detailed as "Realtime MVC Framework for Node.js". Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture.

Ember.js belongs to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while Sails.js can be primarily classified under "Microframeworks (Backend)".

"Elegant" is the top reason why over 121 developers like Ember.js, while over 41 developers mention "Data-driven apis " as the leading cause for choosing Sails.js.

Ember.js and Sails.js are both open source tools. Ember.js with 21.1K GitHub stars and 4.17K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Sails.js with 20.7K GitHub stars and 1.85K GitHub forks.

DigitalOcean, Twitch, and Square are some of the popular companies that use Ember.js, whereas Sails.js is used by Redox Engine, HYPH, and LapNghiep. Ember.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 293 company stacks & 76 developers stacks; compared to Sails.js, which is listed in 32 company stacks and 13 developer stacks.
