Underscore vs Linaria: What are the differences?

Developers describe Underscore as "JavaScript's utility _ belt". A JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects. On the other hand, Linaria is detailed as "Zero-runtime CSS in JS library". Write CSS in JS and get real CSS files during build. Use dynamic prop based styles with the React bindings and have them transpiled to CSS variables automatically. Great productivity with source maps and linting support.

Underscore and Linaria can be primarily classified as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" tools.

Underscore and Linaria are both open source tools. It seems that Underscore with 25.3K GitHub stars and 5.51K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Linaria with 5.13K GitHub stars and 186 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Linaria and Underscore

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) provides standard data objects in JSON format for the healthcare industry. Since JSON objects are hierarchical and tree-like, we had a need to defensively 'pluck' fields from our JSON objects and do lots of mapping. We tried jQuery and Underscore and a few other technologies like FHIRPath; but Lodash has been the most well supported, works in the most contexts, has the cleanest syntax, etc. We particularly like the ES6 version of Lodash, where we can import the method names directly, without resorting to * or _ syntax. We got hooked on the 'get' function to defensively pluck fields from objects without crashing our user interface, and have found countless uses for the other lodash functions throughout our apps. Lodash is great for developing and optimizing algorithms.
