Browserify vs Component vs npm





What is Browserify?

Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.

What is Component?

Component's philosophy is the UNIX philosophy of the web - to create a platform for small, reusable components that consist of JS, CSS, HTML, images, fonts, etc. With its well-defined specs, using Component means not worrying about most frontend problems such as package management, publishing components to a registry, or creating a custom build process for every single app.

What is npm?

npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.

      Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
      Babel will turn your ES6+ code into ES5 friendly code, so you can start using it right now without waiting for browser support.
      Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.
      RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.
      It is the package installer for Python. You can use pip to install packages from the Python Package Index and other indexes.

            Utilize npm private module to package shared library for different React / React Native clients. Shareable code goes here. Basically deliver Redux Store with Firebase integration and business logic in a library. Each React app utilizes this while delivering a device/target specific UI.

            With Browserify we could create the inspector snippet used to connect the user's devices with the Dashboard. Using CommonJS modules we could organize large amounts of code alongside third-party JavaScript modules.

            If you're using Node or Gulp, you can't help but use NPM in some form or another. Fortunately that's never a bad thing with the massive package repository and glowing ecosystem making it a breeze to work with.

            It's the lesser of all of the other evils out there. Webpack makes you completely blind to how things are put together. I like gulp, this made it easy.

            We manages all of our packages, including Angular JS through npm. It is a very quick way of downloading / installing packages into your project.

            Module is published as bpost on the npm registry. Tasks for the module are also defined as npm run tasks with commit hooks for git

            It's the front-end version of Composer, so is pretty essential to pull in packages that can be tracked and kept up to date.

            Main React functionality pipeline broken into CommonJS modules: Reflux data stores, React components (cjsx - coffee/jsx).

            Made sharing node modules with the frontend real easy. Especially when developing hybrid apps.

            We use Browserify to keep our JS organized by requiring modules.
