T3 vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Developers describe T3 as "Client-side JavaScript framework for building large-scale web applications, created by Box". T3 is different than most JavaScript frameworks. It's meant to be a small piece of an overall architecture that allows you to build scalable client-side code. T3 is explicitly not an MVC framework. It's a framework that allows the creation of loosely-coupled components while letting you decide what other pieces you need for your web application. You can use T3 with other frameworks like Backbone or React, or you can use T3 by itself. 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.

T3 and Zepto can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

T3 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 T3 with 1.59K GitHub stars and 160 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to T3 and Zepto?
          jQuery
          jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
          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.
          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.
          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.
