winjs vs Yolk: What are the differences?

Developers describe winjs as "A UI toolkit for modern browsers, by Microsoft". WinJS is a set of JavaScript toolkits that allow developers to build applications using HTML/JS/CSS technology forged with the following principles in mind: 1. Provide developers with a distinctive set of UI controls with high polish and performance with fundamental support for touch, mouse, keyboard and accessibility 2. Provide developers with a cohesive set of components and utilities to build the scaffolding and infrastructure of their applications'. On the other hand, Yolk is detailed as "A user interface library built on RxJS and Virtual-dom". Yolk is a small library built on top of Virtual DOM and RxJS. It exposes a very limited API so that you don't have to spend weeks getting up to speed. Yolk components are just plain functions that return JSX.

winjs and Yolk are both open source tools. winjs with 4.07K GitHub stars and 504 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yolk with 950 GitHub stars and 35 GitHub forks.

            What are some alternatives to winjs and Yolk?
            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.
            Electron
            With Electron, creating a desktop application for your company or idea is easy. Initially developed for GitHub's Atom editor, Electron has since been used to create applications by companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Slack, and Docker. The Electron framework lets you write cross-platform desktop applications using JavaScript, HTML and CSS. It is based on io.js and Chromium and is used in the Atom editor.
            KnockoutJS
            Knockout is a JavaScript MVVM (a modern variant of MVC) library that makes it easier to create rich, desktop-like user interfaces with JavaScript and HTML. It uses observers to make your UI automatically stay in sync with an underlying data model, along with a powerful and extensible set of declarative bindings to enable productive development.
            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.
