Cocoa (OS X) vs React Native Desktop: What are the differences?

What is Cocoa (OS X)? The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X. Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications.

What is React Native Desktop? React Native for OS X. Build OS X desktop apps using React Native.

Cocoa (OS X) and React Native Desktop are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Cross-Platform Desktop Development" tools respectively.
