    They sound similar in part, but I think AngularJS goes further with Dependency Injected Services, Routing, Form Validation support, and IMHO a nicer (and extendable) templating syntax.

    The last time I checked out KnockoutJS (which was quite a while back), the templating syntax used was for a jQuery plugin (jQuery.tmpl) that was no longer going to be supported as part of the core jQuery plugins. The jQuery team dropped it for reasons unknown (as far as I can tell) in favor of a new templating engine, which has yet to materialize AFAIK.

    jQuery.tmpl got moved over to gitHub, and it's since been abandoned.

    But if you want to fork the project and continue improving it, you can. Hooray for open source!
