    #1Preactjs

    Preactjs

    Preact provides the thinnest possible Virtual DOM abstraction on top of the DOM. The web is a stable platform, it's time we stopped reimplementing it in the name of safety. Preact is also a first-class citizen of the web platform. It diffs Virtual DOM against the DOM itself, registers real event handlers, and plays nicely with other libraries.

    "I must say it was surprising in seeing what companies were using Preact. I had to read and grasp the information on it because this is my first time knowing what it is. However, I think that the website is a little confusing for the average person. It does have a guide on getting started which is a plus so it may be okay. "

    #2Gem

    Gem

    Gem.js is a view library - a set of extensible web components for building visual user interfaces and styling web applications in pure-javascript.

    The power of functions and variables is unparalleled, and yet languages like HTML and CSS, which don't have any ability to compose structures together, are still the primary ways people build web applications. Framework after framework has come along to try and solve the problem of making web pages dynamic. Angular, Backbone, Ember, jQuery, mooTools, Dojo, YUI, etc have all tried to be everything to everyone. But what they fail at providing is simplicity and modularity. They end up with bloated libraries filled with features you're not using.

    "I need to start moving away from HTML and CSS because both are outdated. This is where Gem comes into play. I have been using it to make my webpages more dynamic."
