Ember JS
Allows for nesting view templates into top-level views from within a template.

Ember JS
Has an official or well known boilerplate project which lays out the recommended file structure and allows developers to get started faster.

Plugins

1.Has a popular plugin to support animation
Ember JS
Has a plugin which includes facilities to easily create view animations.
2.Has a popular plugin which supports input validation
Ember JS
Plugin to help validate client input before it gets processed or sent to a server. While this does not replace server-side validation, it can vastly improve the user experience.
3.Has a popular plugin which allows for REST server sync
Ember JS
Has a plugin to keep models in sync with their server-side representation without the need of writing boilerplate ajax calls.
4.Has a popular plugin which improves LocalStorage support
Ember JS

Libraries & Packages

1.Has an official, up-to-date entry in the npm package manager
Ember JS
The node package manager can also be used for managing front end scripts.

Data binding

1.Has two-way databinding
Ember JS
Models and views can be bound to update each other.
2.Supports one-way data binding
Ember JS
Views can be bound to update automatically when an observable object changes.
3.Uses observables for data binding
Ember JS
Models are observed for changes. This is a well known pattern. Can be more performant than dirty-checking in some cases.

Performance

1.minified file size without dependencies

235KB

Smaller file size means faster load times.
2.Supports routing and deep linking
Ember JS
Routing allows interaction with the browser url. This is very important for a good user experience if you are building one-page apps.
3.Uses Promises
Ember JS
Has an internal implementation of the Promises/A+ specification. Promises are a popular alternative to callbacks when dealing with server responses.
4.Templates can be pre-compiled on the server
Ember JS
Supports a template engine that can be pre-rendered on the server. This possibly improves page speed, especially on devices with low computing power.
5.Has Dependency Injection
Ember JS
This improves testability and modularity.
6.Updates the DOM asynchronously
Ember JS
Model changes do not immediately result in view updates but are queued and dispatched as a group. This can be a lot more performant than instant view updates.
