RefluxJS vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Developers describe RefluxJS as "A simple library for uni-directional dataflow application architecture inspired by ReactJS Flux". The goal of the refluxjs project is to get this architecture easily up and running in your web application, both client-side or server-side. On the other hand, Zepto is detailed as "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.

RefluxJS and Zepto can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

"Easy to understand" is the primary reason why developers consider RefluxJS over the competitors, whereas "Lightweight " was stated as the key factor in picking Zepto.

RefluxJS and Zepto are both open source tools. It seems that Zepto with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K forks on GitHub has more adoption than RefluxJS with 5.43K GitHub stars and 352 GitHub forks.

        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.

        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.
