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.

Though Redux makes encoding some interactions unnatural, the ease of debugging makes it worthwhile. Additionally, Redux makes it easy to implement saving/bookmarking/sharing just by serializing state
Redux's middleware is great for separating concerns, e.g., requests, errors, telemetry, etc.
Our reducers use immutability-helper to update state
We love functional approach to writing apps and Redux is thus the premium choice in this matter. The inner beauty of the state tree is unbeatable. We recently learned to solve common tasks via middleware. And the Redux Chrome extension is such a marvel - our developers request extra monitors just to have it nearby.
Our state management library of choice. Redux has a simple concept, but it's flexible enough and it's React binding library, react-redux, contains a lot of performance-optimized code to make the most out of this combo.
I have been using React/Flux since just about the beginning of React time. Redux is a great upgrade and extension of the core flux concepts, and brings immutable and strict declarative state to the apps I build.
The PrometheanTV Client Web SDK utilizes the Redux state management library to manage the state of overlay rendering during video playback.
