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.
            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.
            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.
            Browserify
            Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
            Component
            Component's philosophy is the UNIX philosophy of the web - to create a platform for small, reusable components that consist of JS, CSS, HTML, images, fonts, etc. With its well-defined specs, using Component means not worrying about most frontend problems such as package management, publishing components to a registry, or creating a custom build process for every single app.

            Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.

            No real definitive reason, I find it to be the most natural way to import libraries and code in nodejs (prior to ES6 / import).

            The RequireJS package manager is used by various web applications and services to manage dependencies on 3rd party libraries.

            Very nice way to structure a project, as long as you know it will not be a hybrid app.

            RequireJS is the main component until Magento 2.2.x for frontend development.
