layerJS vs Umbrella JS: What are the differences?

What is layerJS? UI composition & animation in pure HTML. UX patterns like menus, sliders, layers & lightboxes, parallax effects, page-swipes, zoom effects, etc. are really just interactive animated layers. layerJS is a simple open source library that provides one simple universal concept to create such patterns in pure HTML.

What is Umbrella JS? Tiny library for DOM manipulation, events and AJAX. Covers your javascript needs for those rainy days. A <3kb performant jQuery-like library born from the question: You might not need jQuery, then what do you need?

You probably need awesome CSS (like Picnic CSS) and a lightweight, modern and performant javascript library. This does:

DOM traversal (selector, filter, find, each, etc.) DOM editing (classes & attributes, html, before, etc.) Event handling.

layerJS and Umbrella JS can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.
