Draggable JS vs Select2: What are the differences?

At its most basic, Draggable gives you drag & drop functionality, fast DOM reordering, accessible markup, and a bundle of events to grab on to.

What is Select2? The jQuery replacement for select boxes. It gives you a customizable select box with support for searching, tagging, remote data sets, infinite scrolling, and many other highly used options. It comes with support for RTL environments, searching with diacritics and over 40 languages built-in.
