Emotion vs Glamorous: What are the differences?

What is Emotion? The Next Generation of CSS in JS. Emotion is a performant and flexible CSS-in-JS library. Building on many other CSS-in-JS libraries, it allows you to style apps quickly with string or object styles. It has predictable composition to avoid specificity issues with CSS. With source maps and labels, Emotion has a great developer experience and great performance with heavy caching in production.

What is Glamorous? Maintainable CSS with React. Glamorous is React component styling solved with an elegant (inspired) API, small footprint (<5kb gzipped), and great performance (via glamor). It has a very similar API to styled-components and uses similar tools under the hood (glamor).

Emotion and Glamorous can be primarily classified as "JavaScript Framework Components" tools.

Emotion and Glamorous are both open source tools. Emotion with 8.39K GitHub stars and 524 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Glamorous with 3.74K GitHub stars and 282 GitHub forks.
