Babel vs Bazel: What are the differences?
Some of the features offered by Babel are:
- Array comprehensions
- Arrow functions
- Async functions
On the other hand, Bazel provides the following key features:
- Multi-language support: Bazel supports Java, Objective-C and C++ out of the box, and can be extended to support arbitrary programming languages.
- High-level build language: Projects are described in the BUILD language, a concise text format that describes a project as sets of small interconnected libraries, binaries and tests. By contrast, with tools like Make you have to describe individual files and compiler invocations.
- Multi-platform support: The same tool and the same BUILD files can be used to build software for different architectures, and even different platforms. At Google, we use Bazel to build both server applications running on systems in our data centers and client apps running on mobile phones.
Babel and Bazel are both open source tools. Babel with 33.8K GitHub stars and 3.6K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Bazel with 12.4K GitHub stars and 2.03K GitHub forks.
