Pro Lets you bundle packages into a custom jQuery like object
Ender allows you to expose your packages into the $ namespace, which allows you to effectively create a customized jQuery. You can provide it with the selector engine, a DOM manipulation library, and an event library of your choice, as well as extend it with additional utilities. By using micro-libraries instead of jQuery, you can get smaller file sizes and more customized utility with more flexibility.
Pro Add dependencies and bundle into a package in one utility
As opposed to Browserify, Ender has the package management portion and bundler as one. Browserify is only a bundler, meaning you need to manage packages with npm as well. Using npm is good if you have frontend and backend dependencies, as you need to use npm for the backend anyway, but not as nice if you only need to create a package for the frontend.
Pro Uses the npm repository
Because Ender uses the npm repository, it gains access to its huge community and plenty of library support.
Pro Supports require through CommonJS
Ender is able to allow you to use use Node.js-style
requires, as it gets its packages from npm, which are all required to support CommonJS.
Pro Small lightweight modules
Ender encourages the use of smaller modules through a jQuery like object. Smaller projects benefit from being developed in parallel which can lead to faster release cycles for a single component, compared to a monolithic project like jQuery. You can also find more diverse functionality by using smaller projects.
By just using the components you need leads to a smaller file size and faster load speed. It also allows you to be more opinionated about which components you want to use, so you don't have to use an API you don't agree with just because it needs to provide backwards compatibility.
Con Utilizing a registry not made for the browser
Ender is another attempt at hijacking and using npm for downloading browser dependencies. But in doing so, it's using a registry and module specifications not made for the browser. This means that there will have to be some extra work to get them to work properly.
