Preact vs VueStrap: 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, VueStrap is detailed as "Bootstrap components built with Vue.js". Bootstrap components built with Vue.js.

Preact and VueStrap belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Preact and VueStrap are both open source tools. Preact with 23.1K GitHub stars and 1.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than VueStrap with 4.83K GitHub stars and 1K GitHub forks.

Preact offers an API which is extremely similar to React's for less than 10% of its size (and createElement is renamed to h, which makes the overall bundle a lot smaller). Although it is less compatible with other libraries than the latter (and its ecosystem is nowhere as developed), this is generally not a problem as Preact exposes the preact/compat API, which can be used as an alias both for React and ReactDOM and allows for the use of libraries which would otherwise just be compatible with React.

      What are some alternatives to Preact and VueStrap?
      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.
      Inferno
      Inferno is an isomorphic library for building high-performance user interfaces, which is crucial when targeting mobile devices. Unlike typical virtual DOM libraries like React, Mithril, Virtual-dom, Snabbdom and Om, Inferno uses techniques to separate static and dynamic content. This allows Inferno to only "diff" renders that have dynamic values.
      Glimmer
      Glimmer is one of the fastest DOM rendering engines, delivering exceptional performance for initial renders as well as updates.
      Mithril
      Mithril is around 12kb gzipped thanks to its small, focused, API. It provides a templating engine with a virtual DOM diff implementation for performant rendering, utilities for high-level modelling via functional composition, as well as support for routing and componentization.
