Ampersand.js vs Espresso.js: What are the differences?

What is Ampersand.js? A highly modular, loosely coupled, non-frameworky framework for building advanced JavaScript apps. We <3 Backbone.js at &yet. It’s brilliantly simple and solves many common problems in developing clientside applications. But we missed the focused simplicity of tiny modules in node-land. We wanted something similar in style and philosophy, but that fully embraced tiny modules, npm, and browserify. Ampersand.js is a well-defined approach to combining (get it?) a series of intentionally tiny modules.

What is Espresso.js? React Meets Backbone for a Minimal MVC. Espresso.js is a tiny MVC framework inspired by Backbone and React with a focus on simplicity and speed. We've aimed to bring the ideas of unidirectional data flow of Flux to a simple, Backbone-style library.

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.

      It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
      Backbone.js
      Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
      Angular 2
      It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
      Ember.js
