Ember.js vs Marionette: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ember.js as "A JavaScript framework for creating ambitious web apps". Ember.js is a JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; Ember.js does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI. On the other hand, Marionette is detailed as "Make your Backbone applications dance". Marionette brings an application architecture to Backbone, along with built in view management and memory management. Backbone.Marionette is a composite application library for Backbone.js that aims to simplify the construction of large scale JavaScript applications. It is a collection of common design and implementation patterns found in applications.

Ember.js and Marionette belong to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

"Elegant" is the top reason why over 121 developers like Ember.js, while over 19 developers mention "Uses Backbone" as the leading cause for choosing Marionette.

Ember.js and Marionette are both open source tools. It seems that Ember.js with 21.1K GitHub stars and 4.17K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Marionette with 7.15K GitHub stars and 1.35K GitHub forks.

Square, Groupon, and Fitbit are some of the popular companies that use Ember.js, whereas Marionette is used by Zinc, Sonarr, and Kayako. Ember.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 293 company stacks & 76 developers stacks; compared to Marionette, which is listed in 35 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

What is Ember.js?

What is Marionette?

It is a JavaScript library with a RESTful JSON interface and is based on the Model–view–presenter application design paradigm. Backbone is known for being lightweight, as its only hard dependency is on one JavaScript library, Underscore.js, plus jQuery for use of the full library.

    What are some alternatives to Ember.js and Marionette?
    Vue.js
    It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
    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.
    Backbone.js
    Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
    Angular 2
    It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
    Aurelia
    Aurelia is a next generation JavaScript client framework that leverages simple conventions to empower your creativity.

    The front end for Heap begun to grow unwieldy. The original jQuery pieces became difficult to maintain and scale, and a decision was made to introduce Backbone.js, Marionette, and TypeScript. Ultimately this ended up being a “detour” in the search for a scalable and maintainable front-end solution. The system did allow for developers to reuse components efficiently, but adding features was a difficult process, and it eventually became a bottleneck in advancing the product.

    Today, the Heap product consists primarily of a customer-facing dashboard powered by React, MobX, and TypeScript on the front end. We wrote our migration to React and MobX in detail last year here.

    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.
