React Canvas vs Svelte: What are the differences?

Developers describe React Canvas as "High performance canvas rendering for React components, developed by Flipboard". React Canvas adds the ability for React components to render to "canvas" rather than DOM. This project is a work-in-progress. Though much of the code is in production on flipboard.com, the React canvas bindings are relatively new and the API is subject to change. On the other hand, Svelte is detailed as "A UI framework that compiles into tiny standalone JavaScript modules". If you've ever built a JavaScript application, the chances are you've encountered – or at least heard of – frameworks like React, Angular, Vue and Ractive. Like Svelte, these tools all share a goal of making it easy to build slick interactive user interfaces. Rather than interpreting your application code at run time, your app is converted into ideal JavaScript at build time. That means you don't pay the performance cost of the framework's abstractions, or incur a penalty when your app first loads.

React Canvas and Svelte are primarily classified as "JavaScript Framework Components" and "Javascript UI Libraries" tools respectively.

React Canvas and Svelte are both open source tools. It seems that Svelte with 20.6K GitHub stars and 769 forks on GitHub has more adoption than React Canvas with 12K GitHub stars and 944 GitHub forks.

Svelte is everything a developer could ever want for flexible, scalable frontend development. I feel like React has reached a maturity level where there needs to be new syntactic sugar added (I'm looking at you, hooks!). I love how Svelte sets out to rebuild a new language to write interfaces in from the ground up.

Chose
Svelte
over
Vue.js

Svelte 3 is exacly what I'm looking for that Vue is not made for.

It has a iterable dom just like angular but very low overhead.

This is going to be used with the application.

for old/ lite devices . ie. * android tv, * micro linux, * possibly text based web browser for ascci and/or linux framebuffer * android go devices * android One devices
