Inferno vs jQuery UI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Inferno as "A fast, React-like JavaScript library for building UIs". Inferno is an isomorphic library for building high-performance user interfaces, which is crucial when targeting mobile devices. Unlike typical virtual DOM libraries like React, Mithril, Virtual-dom, Snabbdom and Om, Inferno uses techniques to separate static and dynamic content. This allows Inferno to only "diff" renders that have dynamic values. On the other hand, jQuery UI is detailed as "Curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library". 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.

Inferno and jQuery UI belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

"Faster than React" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Inferno, while over 213 developers mention "Ui components" as the leading cause for choosing jQuery UI.

Inferno and jQuery UI are both open source tools. Inferno with 13.8K GitHub stars and 636 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than jQuery UI with 10.7K GitHub stars and 5.06K GitHub forks.

    What tools integrate with Inferno?
    What tools integrate with jQuery UI?
    What are some alternatives to Inferno and jQuery UI?
    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).
    Svelte
    If you've ever built a JavaScript application, the chances are you've encountered – or at least heard of – frameworks like React, Angular, Vue and Ractive. Like Svelte, these tools all share a goal of making it easy to build slick interactive user interfaces. Rather than interpreting your application code at run time, your app is converted into ideal JavaScript at build time. That means you don't pay the performance cost of the framework's abstractions, or incur a penalty when your app first loads.
    jQuery
    jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
    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.
