Lesser known JavaScript frameworks!

To put it simply:
-JavaScript is the programming language of HTML and the Web.
-JavaScript is easy to learn.

And a JavaScript framework is an application framework written in JavaScript where the programmers can manipulate the functions and use them for their convenience.
So here are a few lesser known JavaScript frameworks (opinion!) that you should check out.

Why should i need to know it? The yearly average on js world is a Framework/library released every 10min, there are nice things and there are garbage as expected. No one would mean to start a project with any of those as considered legacy nowadays. I really expected to see Svelte.js, Preact and CSS Houdini here, not a list of legacy frameworks and libraries (almost all) that were replaced by other yet more effective: react native for native apps with html css and js, angular, react, preact, svelte for MVVM or SPA and so on

Hey,
I understand your concern and why you may have not liked it. My title & cover picture is misleading ( I didn't bother to make new one for this post, will change it now) . Although I did mention in the beginning that these are lesser known frameworks.
Your statement is valid.
I will definitely make a post for the most popular / new frameworks for JavaScript .

Surely this was posted somewhere in 2015 and just now made it here. I don't have any other explanations for this (outdated) list...

Yeah, the list is old, that's why I mentioned that these are lesser known frameworks.
Although, I didn't make a new cover image for this post ( coz of laziness maybe ) which has lead to the confusion.
Apologies!
