KnockoutJS vs MobX: What are the differences?
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 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.
