Hibernate vs Sequelize: What are the differences?

Hibernate: Idiomatic persistence for Java and relational databases. Hibernate is a suite of open source projects around domain models. The flagship project is Hibernate ORM, the Object Relational Mapper; Sequelize: Easy-to-use multi sql dialect ORM for Node.js & io.js. Sequelize is a promise-based ORM for Node.js and io.js. It supports the dialects PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and MSSQL and features solid transaction support, relations, read replication and more.

Hibernate and Sequelize can be categorized as "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)" tools.

"Easy ORM" is the primary reason why developers consider Hibernate over the competitors, whereas "Good ORM for node.js" was stated as the key factor in picking Sequelize.

Sequelize is an open source tool with 18.9K GitHub stars and 2.99K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sequelize's open source repository on GitHub.

Bodybuilding.com, StyleShare Inc., and Peewah are some of the popular companies that use Hibernate, whereas Sequelize is used by WebbyLab, Hostr, and Decision6. Hibernate has a broader approval, being mentioned in 85 company stacks & 72 developers stacks; compared to Sequelize, which is listed in 38 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Hibernate and Sequelize?
MyBatis
It is a first class persistence framework with support for custom SQL, stored procedures and advanced mappings. It eliminates almost all of the JDBC code and manual setting of parameters and retrieval of results. It can use simple XML or Annotations for configuration and map primitives, Map interfaces and Java POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) to database records.
Spring
A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
SQLAlchemy
SQLAlchemy is the Python SQL toolkit and Object Relational Mapper that gives application developers the full power and flexibility of SQL.
Entity Framework
It is an object-relational mapper that enables .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.
Doctrine 2
Doctrine 2 sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL.
