Preact vs Vue.js: What are the differences?
Developers describe Preact 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). On the other hand, Vue.js is detailed as "Reactive Components for Modern Web Interfaces". Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
"Lightweight" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Preact, while over 207 developers mention "Simple and easy to start with" as the leading cause for choosing Vue.js.
Preact and Vue.js are both open source tools. It seems that Vue.js with 142K GitHub stars and 20.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Preact with 22.9K GitHub stars and 1.19K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Vue.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 819 company stacks & 1169 developers stacks; compared to Preact, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
