guava vs Apache FreeMarker: What are the differences?

Developers describe guava as "Google Core Libraries for Java 6+". The Guava project contains several of Google's core libraries that we rely on in our Java-based projects: collections, caching, primitives support, concurrency libraries, common annotations, string processing, I/O, and so forth. On the other hand, Apache FreeMarker is detailed as "A free Java-based template engine". It is a "template engine"; a generic tool to generate text output (anything from HTML to auto generated source code) based on templates. It's a Java package, a class library for Java programmers.

guava and Apache FreeMarker can be categorized as "Java" tools.

guava and Apache FreeMarker are both open source tools. guava with 33.5K GitHub stars and 7.45K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Apache FreeMarker with 474 GitHub stars and 142 GitHub forks.
