Ampersand.js vs Mithril: What are the differences?

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; Mithril: Client-side MVC framework - a tool to organize code in a way that is easy to think about and to maintain. Mithril is around 12kb gzipped thanks to its small, focused, API. It provides a templating engine with a virtual DOM diff implementation for performant rendering, utilities for high-level modelling via functional composition, as well as support for routing and componentization.
