Cycle.js vs Flux: What are the differences?

Cycle.js: A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code. A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code; Flux: Application Architecture for Building User Interfaces. Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.

Cycle.js and Flux can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Cycle.js and Flux are both open source tools. It seems that Flux with 16.2K GitHub stars and 3.62K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Cycle.js with 9.34K GitHub stars and 385 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Cycle.js and Flux?
          Elm
          Writing HTML apps is super easy with elm-lang/html. Not only does it render extremely fast, it also quietly guides you towards well-architected code.
          RxJS
          RxJS is a library for reactive programming using Observables, to make it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. This project is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS with better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface.
          jQuery
          jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
          React
          Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
          jQuery UI
          Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.

          We are in the middle of a change of the stack on the front end. So we used Backbone.js with Marionette. Then we also created our own implementation of a Flux kind of flow. We call it eb-flux. We have worked with Marionette for a long time. Then at some point we start evolving and end up having a kind of Redux.js-style architecture, but with Marionette.

          But then maybe one and a half years ago, we started moving into React and that's why we created the Eventbrite design system. It's a really nice project that probably could be open sourced. It's a library of components for our React components.

          With the help of that library, we are building our new stack with React and sometimes Redux when it's necessary.

          How developers use Cycle.js and Flux

          Casey Smith uses FluxFlux

          "Idiot proof MVC" using transactional pub/sub between models, views, and controllers to establish reliable one-way data flow. Combines well with Polymer web components to create a modular, loosely coupled front-end architecture.
