There’s A New New JavaScript Framework

An anonymous reader quotes InfoWorld:
Mithril, an open source JavaScript framework for single-page applications, is looking to best Facebook’s React, Google’s Angular, and Vue JavaScript tools in performance and ease of use. The framework is small and fast, and it provides routing and XHR (XMLHttpRequest) out of the box. Mithril also offers benefits in relative density, lead developer Leo Horie said. “It’s possible to develop entire applications without resorting to other libraries, and it’s not uncommon for Mithril apps to weigh a third of other apps of similar complexity.” Horie said that the framework feels closer to vanilla JavaScript.
Mithril’s website features a comparison to Angular, React, and Vue. Mithril, for example, offers much quicker library load times and update performance than React, and it has a better learning curve and update performance than Angular. Compared to Vue, Mithril supposedly offers better library load times and update performance.
Since its initial release, version 1.0.1 has added performance improvements in IE, while 1.1.0 added support for ES6 class components and support for closure components.
