Ember uses its own template engine which is a superset of the Handlerbars template engine to build semantic templates effectively with no frustration. The other great thing about ember is that it follows conventions over configuration which helps developers to focus more on their apps, and less on creating your own rules. The popularity of Ember can be measured by its user base. It is used on many popular websites: Yahoo, Netflix, Zendesk, Groupon, LinkedIn and many other major customers.
Vue (pronounced like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only and is very easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects. On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries.
Vue.js focuses on making ideas in web UI development (components, declarative UI, hot-reloading, time-travel debugging, etc.) more approachable. It attempts to be less opinionated and thus easier for developers to pick up.
Vue was featured as a rising star on GitHub having gained the most stars of any Open Source Project on the popular website. It recently clocked 60,606 stars which makes it among the most popular open source projects on GitHub in general.
- Declarative Binding ? HTML DOM elements can be easily associated the model data using concise and readable syntax.
- Automatic UI Refreshing ? Changes made to data model's state are reflected in the UI automatically and vice-versa.
- Dependency tracking ? automatically updates the right parts of your UI whenever your data model changes.
- Templating ? Templates are a way to build complex UI structures. Knockout.js allows you to quickly generate sophisticated, nested UIs as a function of your model data.
- Extensible - Implement custom behaviors as new declarative bindings for easy reuse in just a few lines of code.
- Automatic refreshing the UI when the model changes.
