            What are some alternatives to Preact and Yolk?
            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.
            jQuery
            jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
