Backbone.js vs jsf: What are the differences?

Developers describe Backbone.js as "Give your JS App some Backbone with Models, Views, Collections, and Events". 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. On the other hand, jsf is detailed as "It is use for building component-based web interfaces". It is used for building component-based user interfaces for web applications and was formalized as a standard through the Java Community.

Backbone.js and jsf can be primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" tools.

Backbone.js is an open source tool with 27.5K GitHub stars and 5.68K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Backbone.js's open source repository on GitHub.

Uber Technologies, Pinterest, and reddit are some of the popular companies that use Backbone.js, whereas jsf is used by GameDuell, Universidade CEUMA, and Maps S.A.. Backbone.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1207 company stacks & 1124 developers stacks; compared to jsf, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

    Vue.js
    It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
    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.
    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.
    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
    A JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; It does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.
