Cycle.js vs Redux: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cycle.js as "A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code". A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code. On the other hand, Redux is detailed as "Predictable state container for JavaScript apps". Redux helps you write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server, and native), and are easy to test. On top of that, it provides a great developer experience, such as live code editing combined with a time traveling debugger.

Cycle.js can be classified as a tool in the "Javascript UI Libraries" category, while Redux is grouped under "State Management Library".

Some of the features offered by Cycle.js are:

  • RxJS
  • Reactive Frontend
  • Frontend framework

On the other hand, Redux provides the following key features:

  • Predictable state
  • Easy testing
  • Works with other view layers besides React

Cycle.js and Redux are both open source tools. Redux with 49.5K GitHub stars and 12.8K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Cycle.js with 9.34K GitHub stars and 385 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Cycle.js and Redux?
        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.
