Monkberry vs Preact: What are the differences?

Developers describe Monkberry as "Blazingly fast, small 1kb and simple JavaScript library for building web user interfaces". Why is Monkberry so fast? Even in comparison with React, Monkberry is 10 times faster, sometimes 100 times faster It's because Monkberry will do only necessary dom updates, and does it in a completely different way than React does. Monkberry compiles template to plain JavaScript to gain an advantage by using v8 hidden classes and reduce call stack.. On the other hand, Preact is detailed as "A fast 3k React alternative". 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).

Monkberry and Preact can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Monkberry and Preact are both open source tools. It seems that Preact with 23.1K GitHub stars and 1.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Monkberry with 1.46K GitHub stars and 77 GitHub forks.

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

          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.
          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鈥檚 syntax to express your application鈥檚 components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
          Vue.js
          It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.

          Simple controls over complex technologies, as we put it, wouldn't be possible without neat UIs for our user areas including start page, dashboard, settings, and docs.

          Initially, there was Django. Back in 2011, considering our Python-centric approach, that was the best choice. Later, we realized we needed to iterate on our website more quickly. And this led us to detaching Django from our front end. That was when we decided to build an SPA.

          For building user interfaces, we're currently using React as it provided the fastest rendering back when we were building our toolkit. It鈥檚 worth mentioning Uploadcare is not a front-end-focused SPA: we aren鈥檛 running at high levels of complexity. If it were, we鈥檇 go with Ember.js.

          However, there's a chance we will shift to the faster Preact, with its motto of using as little code as possible, and because it makes more use of browser APIs. One of our future tasks for our front end is to configure our Webpack bundler to split up the code for different site sections. For styles, we use PostCSS along with its plugins such as cssnano which minifies all the code.

          All that allows us to provide a great user experience and quickly implement changes where they are needed with as little code as possible.

          The first and most important premise is that should be fast.. really fast. This premise was basically because this is an PWA project, and the main goal of this project are be more efficient on restaurant.

          So I ended up choosing Preact instead React .

          This made the app (PWA) more faster, not only when navigating but improve TTI and data usage.
