  • Joli.js now has 200+ watchers and 40+ forks. It is actively being maintained.

  • Any changes after 3 years? Is any of them become a standard?

  • I can't really comment on these libraries since I have not used any of them in depth on a real project, but I'm not aware that any AR solutions for Titanium have emerged as a mature leader. Using one of these means you'll be an early adopter, which is great, but I would be prepared to roll up your sleeves and debug any library you choose.
