Hogan.js vs RactiveJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Hogan.js as "A compiler for the Mustache templating language". Hogan.js is a 3.4k JS templating engine developed at Twitter. Use it as a part of your asset packager to compile templates ahead of time or include it in your browser to handle dynamic templates. 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.

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

"Lightweight" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Hogan.js, while over 6 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing RactiveJS.

      What are some alternatives to Hogan.js and RactiveJS?
      EJS
      It is a simple templating language that lets you generate HTML markup with plain JavaScript. No religiousness about how to organize things. No reinvention of iteration and control-flow. It's just plain JavaScript.
      TypeScript
      TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
      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.
