MobX vs Redux: 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.
MobX and Redux belong to "State Management Library" category of the tech stack.
"It's just stupidly simple, yet so magical" is the primary reason why developers consider MobX over the competitors, whereas "State is predictable" was stated as the key factor in picking Redux.
MobX and Redux are both open source tools. Redux with 49.2K GitHub stars and 12.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MobX with 19.6K GitHub stars and 1.21K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Redux has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1021 company stacks & 803 developers stacks; compared to MobX, which is listed in 51 company stacks and 32 developer stacks.
