Entropic vs RequireJS: What are the differences?

What is Entropic? A federated package registry for anything. It is a new package registry with a new CLI, designed to be easy to stand up inside your network. It features an entirely new file-centric API and a content-addressable storage system that attempts to minimize the amount of data you must retrieve over a network. This file-centric approach also applies to the publication API.

What is RequireJS? JavaScript file and module loader. RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

Entropic and RequireJS can be categorized as "Front End Package Manager" tools.

Entropic and RequireJS are both open source tools. RequireJS with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Entropic with 4.15K GitHub stars and 149 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Entropic and RequireJS?
        npm
        npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.
        Yarn
        Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.
        Bower
        Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
        Browserify
        Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
        Bundler
        It provides a consistent environment for Ruby projects by tracking and installing the exact gems and versions that are needed. It is an exit from dependency hell, and ensures that the gems you need are present in development, staging, and production.
