Cycle.js vs React.js Boilerplate: What are the differences?

Cycle.js: A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code. A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code; React.js Boilerplate: 🔥 Quick setup for performance orientated, offline-first React.js apps. Quick setup for new performance orientated, offline–first React.js applications featuring Redux, hot–reloading, PostCSS, react-router, ServiceWorker, AppCache, FontFaceObserver and Mocha.

Cycle.js and React.js Boilerplate belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Cycle.js are:

  • RxJS
  • Reactive Frontend
  • Frontend framework

On the other hand, React.js Boilerplate provides the following key features:

  • Using react-transform-hmr, your changes in the CSS and JS get reflected in the app instantly without refreshing the page. That means that the current application state persists even when you change something in the underlying code! For a very good explanation and demo, watch Dan Abramov himself talking about it at react-europe.
  • Redux is a much better implementation of a flux–like, unidirectional data flow. Redux makes actions composable, reduces the boilerplate code and makes hot–reloading possible in the first place. For a good overview of redux, check out the talk linked above or the official documentation!
  • Babel is a modular JavaScript transpiler that helps to use next generation JavaScript and more, like transformation for JSX, hot loading, error catching etc. Babel has a solid ecosystem of offical preset and plugins.

Cycle.js and React.js Boilerplate are both open source tools. It seems that React.js Boilerplate with 22.9K GitHub stars and 4.59K 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 React.js Boilerplate?
      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.
      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
      jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
