KnockoutJS vs MobX: What are the differences?

What is KnockoutJS? Knockout makes it easier to create rich, responsive UIs with JavaScript. Knockout is a JavaScript MVVM (a modern variant of MVC) library that makes it easier to create rich, desktop-like user interfaces with JavaScript and HTML. It uses observers to make your UI automatically stay in sync with an underlying data model, along with a powerful and extensible set of declarative bindings to enable productive development.

What is MobX? Simple, scalable state management. MobX is a battle tested library that makes state management simple and scalable by transparently applying functional reactive programming (TFRP). React and MobX together are a powerful combination. React renders the application state by providing mechanisms to translate it into a tree of renderable components. MobX provides the mechanism to store and update the application state that React then uses.

KnockoutJS belongs to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while MobX can be primarily classified under "State Management Library".

KnockoutJS and MobX are both open source tools. It seems that MobX with 19.8K GitHub stars and 1.21K forks on GitHub has more adoption than KnockoutJS with 9.54K GitHub stars and 1.54K GitHub forks.

Udemy, Swat.io, and Talkable are some of the popular companies that use MobX, whereas KnockoutJS is used by Runscope, Huddle, and EasyPreOrders. MobX has a broader approval, being mentioned in 52 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to KnockoutJS, which is listed in 28 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to KnockoutJS and MobX?
      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
      React
      Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
      Backbone.js
      Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
      Angular 2
      Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
      Ember.js
      Ember.js is a JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; Ember.js does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.
