Browserify vs Verdaccio: What are the differences?

Developers describe Browserify as "Browser-side require() the node.js way". Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies. On the other hand, Verdaccio is detailed as "A lightweight private npm proxy registry". A simple, zero-config-required local private npm registry. Comes out of the box with its own tiny database, and the ability to proxy other registries (eg. npmjs.org), caching the downloaded modules along the way.

Browserify and Verdaccio can be primarily classified as "Front End Package Manager" tools.

Browserify and Verdaccio are both open source tools. Browserify with 12.8K GitHub stars and 1.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Verdaccio with 7.19K GitHub stars and 656 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to Browserify and Verdaccio?
      Bower
      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
      Babel will turn your ES6+ code into ES5 friendly code, so you can start using it right now without waiting for browser support.
      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.
      Yarn
      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
      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.

        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.

        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.

        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.
