Inferno vs Re-base: What are the differences?
What is Re-base? A Relay inspired library for building React.js + Firebase applications. React.js makes managing state easy to reason about. Firebase makes persisting your data easy to implement. re-base, inspired by Relay, combines the benefits of React and Firebase by allowing each component to specify its own data dependency. Forget about your data persistence and focus on what really matters, your application's state.
Some of the features offered by Inferno are:
- One of the fastest front-end frameworks for rendering UI in the DOM
- Components have a similar API to React ES2015 components with inferno-component
- Stateless components are fully supported and have more usability thanks to Inferno's hooks system
On the other hand, Re-base provides the following key features:
- syncState: Two way data binding between any property on your component's state and any endpoint in Firebase. Use the same API you're used to to update your component's state (setState), and Firebase will also update.
- bindToState: One way data binding. Whenever your Firebase endpoint changes, the property on your state will update as well.
- listenTo: Whenever your Firebase endpoint changes, it will invoke a callback passing it the new data from Firebase.
Inferno and Re-base are both open source tools. It seems that Inferno with 13.8K GitHub stars and 636 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Re-base with 2.13K GitHub stars and 162 GitHub forks.
