jQuery UI vs Riot: What are the differences?

Developers describe jQuery UI as "Curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library". Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice. On the other hand, Riot is detailed as "A React-like user interface micro-library". Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve.

jQuery UI and Riot belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

"Ui components" is the primary reason why developers consider jQuery UI over the competitors, whereas "Light weight. Fast. Clear" was stated as the key factor in picking Riot.

jQuery UI and Riot are both open source tools. It seems that Riot with 13.7K GitHub stars and 1.02K forks on GitHub has more adoption than jQuery UI with 10.7K GitHub stars and 5.06K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, jQuery UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1896 company stacks & 574 developers stacks; compared to Riot, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
