Component vs Entropic: What are the differences?
What is Component? Client package management for building better web applications. 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 Entropic? A federated package registry for anything. It is a new package registry with a new CLI, designed to be easy to stand up inside your network. It features an entirely new file-centric API and a content-addressable storage system that attempts to minimize the amount of data you must retrieve over a network. This file-centric approach also applies to the publication API.
Component and Entropic can be categorized as "Front End Package Manager" tools.
Component and Entropic are both open source tools. It seems that Component with 4.64K GitHub stars and 352 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Entropic with 4.15K GitHub stars and 149 GitHub forks.
