Zepto vs OpenUI5: What are the differences?

Developers describe Zepto as "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. On the other hand, OpenUI5 is detailed as "Build enterprise-ready web applications, responsive to all devices and running on the browser of your choice". It is an Open Source JavaScript UI library, maintained by SAP. It lets you build enterprise-ready web applications, responsive to all devices, running on almost any browser of your choice. It’s based on JavaScript, using JQuery as its foundation and follows web standards. It eases your development with a client-side HTML5 rendering library including a rich set of controls and supports data binding to different models (JSON, XML and OData).

        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.
        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.

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