Flight vs Flux: What are the differences?

What is Flight? A component-based, event-driven JavaScript framework from Twitter. Flight is distinct from existing frameworks in that it doesn't prescribe or provide any particular approach to rendering or providing data to a web application. It's agnostic to how requests are routed, which templating language you use or even if you render your HTML on the client or the server. While some web frameworks encourage developers to arrange their code around a prescribed model layer, Flight is organized around the existing DOM model with functionality mapped directly to DOM nodes.

What is Flux? Application Architecture for Building User Interfaces. Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.

Flight and Flux can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Flight and Flux are both open source tools. It seems that Flux with 16.2K GitHub stars and 3.62K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Flight with 6.64K GitHub stars and 588 GitHub forks.

Facebook, Hootsuite, and Tilt are some of the popular companies that use Flux, whereas Flight is used by Adtena, Birchbox, and Drip. Flux has a broader approval, being mentioned in 67 company stacks & 29 developers stacks; compared to Flight, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

          "Idiot proof MVC" using transactional pub/sub between models, views, and controllers to establish reliable one-way data flow. Combines well with Polymer web components to create a modular, loosely coupled front-end architecture.
