Description

What is jQuery?

jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

What is Zepto?

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.

What is Riot?

Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve.
