Yoga vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Developers describe Yoga as "A cross-platform layout engine, by Facebook". Yoga is a cross-platform layout engine which implements Flexbox. Yoga enables maximum collaboration within your team by implementing an API familiar to many designers and opening it up to developers across different platforms. 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.

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

"Jhgjhgjhgjgjhghjg" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Yoga, while over 2 developers mention "Lightweight " as the leading cause for choosing Zepto.

Yoga 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 Yoga with 12.1K GitHub stars and 928 GitHub forks.

        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.
