Fluxible vs React.js Boilerplate: What are the differences?
What is Fluxible? A pluggable container for universal flux applications, by Yahoo. Pluggable, singleton-free container for isomorphic Flux applications.
What is React.js Boilerplate? 🔥 Quick setup for performance orientated, offline-first React.js apps. Quick setup for new performance orientated, offline–first React.js applications featuring Redux, hot–reloading, PostCSS, react-router, ServiceWorker, AppCache, FontFaceObserver and Mocha.
Some of the features offered by Fluxible are:
- Singleton-free for server rendering
- Store dehydration for client bootstrapping
- Stateless async actions
On the other hand, React.js Boilerplate provides the following key features:
- Using react-transform-hmr, your changes in the CSS and JS get reflected in the app instantly without refreshing the page. That means that the current application state persists even when you change something in the underlying code! For a very good explanation and demo, watch Dan Abramov himself talking about it at react-europe.
- Redux is a much better implementation of a flux–like, unidirectional data flow. Redux makes actions composable, reduces the boilerplate code and makes hot–reloading possible in the first place. For a good overview of redux, check out the talk linked above or the official documentation!
