Lerna vs Apache Maven: What are the differences?

Developers describe Lerna as "A tool for managing JavaScript projects". It is a popular and widely used package written in JavaScript. It optimizes the workflow around managing multi-package repositories with git and npm. On the other hand, Apache Maven is detailed as "Apache build manager for Java projects". Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.

Lerna and Apache Maven are primarily classified as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" and "Java Build" tools respectively.

Lerna and Apache Maven are both open source tools. It seems that Lerna with 17.6K GitHub stars and 1.11K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Apache Maven with 1.74K GitHub stars and 1.28K GitHub forks.

        We use Apache Maven because it is a standard. Gradle is very good alternative, but Gradle doesn't provide any advantage for our project. Gradle is slower (without running daemon), need more resources and a learning curve is quite big. Our project can not use a great flexibility of Gradle. On the other hand, Maven is well-know tool integrated in many IDEs, Dockers and so on.

        All Java-Projects are compiled using Maven. We prefer it over Ant and Gradle as it combines lightweightness with feature-richness and offers basically all we can imagine from a software project-management tool and more.
