Riot vs ShieldUI: What are the differences?
Developers describe Riot as "A React-like user interface micro-library". Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve. On the other hand, ShieldUI is detailed as "jQuery Plugins and HTML5 UI Framework". We offer a rich suite, which includes over 40 different component types and spans over multiple development platforms.
Some of the features offered by Riot are:
- Absolutely the smallest possible amount of DOM updates and reflows.
- One way data flow: updates and unmounts are propagated downwards from parent to children.
- Expressions are pre-compiled and cached for high performance.
On the other hand, ShieldUI provides the following key features:
- ASP.NET server controls with advanced data binding
- ASP.NET MVC components for tight integration with models and views
