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.

              What are some alternatives to Component and Entropic?
              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.
              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.
              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.
              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.
              Browserify
              Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
