Sinuous vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sinuous as "A blazing fast reactive UI library". It provides the clarity of declarative views and the performance of direct DOM manipulation. It helps keep your bundle size down, a basic counter is just shy of 1.4kB This makes it an ideal library to use in embeds, components, UI widgets, etc. 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.

Sinuous and Zepto can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

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.
