WebGL vs Zepto: What are the differences?

What is WebGL? A JavaScript API for rendering 3D graphics within any compatible web browser. It is integrated completely into all the web standards of the browser allowing GPU accelerated usage of physics and image processing and effects as part of the web page canvas. Its elements can be mixed with other HTML elements.

What is Zepto? 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.

WebGL and Zepto belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Zepto is an open source tool with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Zepto's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Zepto has a broader approval, being mentioned in 66 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to WebGL, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

        I'll consider Zepto if jQuery is overkill for the amount of JavaScript work I'll be needing for the specific project.
