Espresso.js vs KnockoutJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Espresso.js as "React Meets Backbone for a Minimal MVC". Espresso.js is a tiny MVC framework inspired by Backbone and React with a focus on simplicity and speed. We've aimed to bring the ideas of unidirectional data flow of Flux to a simple, Backbone-style library. On the other hand, KnockoutJS is detailed as "Knockout makes it easier to create rich, responsive UIs with JavaScript". Knockout is a JavaScript MVVM (a modern variant of MVC) library that makes it easier to create rich, desktop-like user interfaces with JavaScript and HTML. It uses observers to make your UI automatically stay in sync with an underlying data model, along with a powerful and extensible set of declarative bindings to enable productive development.

Espresso.js and KnockoutJS can be primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" tools.

Espresso.js and KnockoutJS are both open source tools. KnockoutJS with 9.54K GitHub stars and 1.54K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Espresso.js with 523 GitHub stars and 20 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Espresso.js and KnockoutJS?
          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.
          Vue.js
          It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
          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
          It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
          Ember.js
          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; It does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.
