Yolk vs Zepto: What are the differences?

Yolk: 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; 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.

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

Yolk and Zepto are both open source tools. Zepto with 14.5K GitHub stars and 4.06K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yolk with 950 GitHub stars and 35 GitHub forks.

            jQuery UI

            React

            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.
