Pug vs RactiveJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Pug as "Robust, elegant, feature rich template engine for nodejs". This project was formerly known as "Jade." Pug is a high performance template engine heavily influenced by Haml and implemented with JavaScript for Node.js and browsers. On the other hand, RactiveJS is detailed as "Next-generation DOM manipulation". Ractive was originally created at theguardian.com to produce news applications. Ractive takes your Mustache templates and transforms them into a lightweight representation of the DOM – then when your data changes, it intelligently updates the real DOM.

Pug and RactiveJS can be categorized as "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools.

"Elegant html" is the primary reason why developers consider Pug over the competitors, whereas "Lightweight" was stated as the key factor in picking RactiveJS.

Pug and RactiveJS are both open source tools. Pug with 18.4K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than RactiveJS with 5.67K GitHub stars and 440 GitHub forks.

Coursera, Key Location, and Sellsuki are some of the popular companies that use Pug, whereas RactiveJS is used by Teleport, LeVego, and Record Bird. Pug has a broader approval, being mentioned in 174 company stacks & 119 developers stacks; compared to RactiveJS, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      TypeScript

      Handlebars.js
      Handlebars.js is an extension to the Mustache templating language created by Chris Wanstrath. Handlebars.js and Mustache are both logicless templating languages that keep the view and the code separated like we all know they should be.
      Mustache
      Mustache is a logic-less template syntax. It can be used for HTML, config files, source code - anything. It works by expanding tags in a template using values provided in a hash or object. We call it "logic-less" because there are no if statements, else clauses, or for loops. Instead there are only tags. Some tags are replaced with a value, some nothing, and others a series of values.
      Hogan.js
      Hogan.js is a 3.4k JS templating engine developed at Twitter. Use it as a part of your asset packager to compile templates ahead of time or include it in your browser to handle dynamic templates.

      We use Jade when writing HTML, which is much easier to read and maintain. We compile it to HTML before deploying it though, and don't use Jade's client-side rendering features.

      We use Jade for constructing our modular UI. We also rely on Jade interpolation to pass reactive and static values from our Express server.

      Structuring our one page app around the data to templating structure of RactiveJS was an easy way to make the code slick and mantainable

      Nice templating system, but lacks proper namespacing for non-html / xml data.
