Git Reflow vs Magit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Git Reflow as "Reflow automatically creates pull requests, ensures the code review is approved, and squash merges finished branches to master". Reflow automatically creates pull requests, ensures the code review is approved, and squash merges finished branches to master with a great commit message template. On the other hand, Magit is detailed as "It's Magit! A Git Porcelain inside Emacs". Magit is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package. Magit aspires to be a complete Git porcelain. While we cannot (yet) claim that Magit wraps and improves upon each and every Git command, it is complete enough to allow even experienced Git users to perform almost all of their daily version control tasks directly from within Emacs. While many fine Git clients exist, only Magit and Git itself deserve to be called porcelains.

Git Reflow and Magit belong to "Version Control System" category of the tech stack.

Git Reflow and Magit are both open source tools. It seems that Magit with 4.09K GitHub stars and 599 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Git Reflow with 1.45K GitHub stars and 60 GitHub forks.
