Key features and highlights

General info

1.Has automatic view filtering
Ember JS
Flight

Has a mechanism to filter views based on scope variables (for example when searching) without the need to write much extra code.

2.Uses a templating engine
Ember JS
Flight

Template engines allow for easy and flexible UI building.

3.Supports computed properties
Ember JS
Flight

Allows the use of functions as properties to compute properties of objects.

4.Published under MIT License
Ember JS
Flight

The MIT License is a very permissive license which allows all uses, including business use, without warranty.

5.Supports composed (partial) views
Ember JS
Flight

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

6.versions of Internet Explorer supported

8

7

Legacy browser support can be important for corporate projects and projects with a large user base consisting of Internet Explorer users.

Plugins

1.Has a popular plugin to support animation
Ember JS
Flight

Has a plugin which includes facilities to easily create view animations.

2.Has a popular plugin which supports input validation
Ember JS
Flight

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 improves LocalStorage support
Ember JS
Flight

Has plugin which offers a simple functionality to synchronize models with the HTML5 LocalStorage.

4.Has a popular plugin which allows for REST server sync
Ember JS
Flight

Has a plugin to keep models in sync with their server-side representation without the need of writing boilerplate ajax calls.

Libraries & Packages

1.Has an official, up-to-date entry in the npm package manager
Ember JS
Flight

The node package manager can also be used for managing front end scripts.

2.Works with AMD libraries such as require.js
Ember JS
Flight

Asynchronous Module Definition libraries allow for easy modular, clean programming. If a framework does not work well with such libraries, it might have some other means to modularize its components and resolve dependencies, like Dependency Injection.

3.Officially supports Bower dependency management
Ember JS
Flight

Bower is an easy-to-use, npm-like package manager for frontend applications.

Data binding

1.Has two-way databinding
Ember JS
Flight

Models and views can be bound to update each other.

2.Supports one-way data binding
Ember JS
Flight

Views can be bound to update automatically when an observable object changes.

3.Allows the use of view mixins
Ember JS
Flight

Mixins are a programming technique that allows different objects to share common behaviour without the need for object-oriented inheritance.

4.Uses observables for data binding
Ember JS
Flight

Models are observed for changes. This is a well known pattern. Can be more performant than dirty-checking in some cases.

relevant

Performance

1.Uses Promises
Ember JS
Flight

Has an internal implementation of the Promises/A+ specification. Promises are a popular alternative to callbacks when dealing with server responses.

2.Supports routing and deep linking
Ember JS
Flight

Routing allows interaction with the browser url. This is very important for a good user experience if you are building one-page apps.

3.minified file size without dependencies

235KB

14KB

Smaller file size means faster load times.

Best

Flight

14KB

4.Templates can be pre-compiled on the server
Ember JS
Flight

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
Flight

This improves testability and modularity.

6.Updates the DOM asynchronously
Ember JS
Flight

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.
