Flux vs RefluxJS: What are the differences?

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.

What is RefluxJS? A simple library for uni-directional dataflow application architecture inspired by ReactJS Flux. The goal of the refluxjs project is to get this architecture easily up and running in your web application, both client-side or server-side.

Flux and RefluxJS belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

"Unidirectional data flow" is the top reason why over 43 developers like Flux, while over 4 developers mention "Easy to understand" as the leading cause for choosing RefluxJS.

Flux and RefluxJS are both open source tools. It seems that Flux with 16.2K GitHub stars and 3.62K forks on GitHub has more adoption than RefluxJS with 5.43K GitHub stars and 352 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Flux and RefluxJS?
        jQuery
        jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
        React
        Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
        jQuery UI
        Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.
        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鈥檚 syntax to express your application鈥檚 components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
        Vue.js
        It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.

        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.

        How developers use Flux and RefluxJS

        Casey Smith uses FluxFlux

        "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.
