Kue vs RSMQ: What are the differences?

Developers describe Kue as "Kue is a priority job queue backed by redis, built for node.js". Kue is a feature rich priority job queue for node.js backed by redis. A key feature of Kue is its clean user-interface for viewing and managing queued, active, failed, and completed jobs. On the other hand, RSMQ is detailed as "A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server". tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.

Kue and RSMQ are primarily classified as "Background Processing" and "Message Queue" tools respectively.

Kue and RSMQ are both open source tools. It seems that Kue with 8.74K GitHub stars and 880 forks on GitHub has more adoption than RSMQ with 1.07K GitHub stars and 74 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Kue and RSMQ?
        Bull
        The fastest, most reliable, Redis-based queue for Node. Carefully written for rock solid stability and atomicity.
        RabbitMQ
        RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
        Sidekiq
        Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process. It does not require Rails but will integrate tightly with Rails 3/4 to make background processing dead simple.
        Resque
        Background jobs can be any Ruby class or module that responds to perform. Your existing classes can easily be converted to background jobs or you can create new classes specifically to do work. Or, you can do both.
        Beanstalkd
        Beanstalks's interface is generic, but was originally designed for reducing the latency of page views in high-volume web applications by running time-consuming tasks asynchronously.
