Hyperapp vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Hyperapp: 1 KB JavaScript library for building front end applications. Out of the box, Hyperapp combines state management with a VDOM engine that supports keyed updates & lifecycle events — all with no dependencies; Zepto: Minimalist JavaScript library for modern browsers, with a jQuery-compatible API. While 100% jQuery coverage is not a design goal, the APIs provided match their jQuery counterparts. The goal is to have a ~5-10k modular library that downloads and executes fast, with a familiar and versatile API, so you can concentrate on getting stuff done.

Hyperapp and Zepto can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Some of the features offered by Hyperapp are:

  • Minimal
  • Functional
  • Batteries-included

On the other hand, Zepto provides the following key features:

  • zepto - Core module
  • contains most methods
  • event - Event handling via on() & off()

Hyperapp and Zepto are both open source tools. Hyperapp with 16.8K GitHub stars and 753 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Zepto with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Hyperapp and Zepto?
          React
          Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
          Preact
          Preact is an attempt to recreate the core value proposition of React (or similar libraries like Mithril) using as little code as possible, with first-class support for ES2015. Currently the library is around 3kb (minified & gzipped).
          Mithril
          Mithril is around 12kb gzipped thanks to its small, focused, API. It provides a templating engine with a virtual DOM diff implementation for performant rendering, utilities for high-level modelling via functional composition, as well as support for routing and componentization.
          jQuery
          jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
          jQuery UI
          Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.

          I'll consider Zepto if jQuery is overkill for the amount of JavaScript work I'll be needing for the specific project.

          For the occasional lightweight JQuery alternative.
