Re-base vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Re-base: A Relay inspired library for building React.js + Firebase applications. React.js makes managing state easy to reason about. Firebase makes persisting your data easy to implement. re-base, inspired by Relay, combines the benefits of React and Firebase by allowing each component to specify its own data dependency. Forget about your data persistence and focus on what really matters, your application's state; Zepto: 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.

Re-base and Zepto can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Some of the features offered by Re-base are:

  • syncState: Two way data binding between any property on your component's state and any endpoint in Firebase. Use the same API you're used to to update your component's state (setState), and Firebase will also update.
  • bindToState: One way data binding. Whenever your Firebase endpoint changes, the property on your state will update as well.
  • listenTo: Whenever your Firebase endpoint changes, it will invoke a callback passing it the new data from Firebase.

On the other hand, Zepto provides the following key features:

  • zepto - Core module
  • contains most methods
  • event - Event handling via on() & off()

Re-base and Zepto are both open source tools. Zepto with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Re-base with 2.13K GitHub stars and 162 GitHub forks.

        jQuery
        jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
        jQuery UI
        Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.
        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.
        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.
        Vue.js
        It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.

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

        For the occasional lightweight JQuery alternative.
