MobX vs Unstated: What are the differences?

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; Unstated: State so simple, it goes without saying. State so simple, it goes without saying.

MobX and Unstated belong to "State Management Library" category of the tech stack.

        What are some alternatives to MobX and Unstated?
        Relay
        Never again communicate with your data store using an imperative API. Simply declare your data requirements using GraphQL and let Relay figure out how and when to fetch your data.
        KnockoutJS
        Knockout is a JavaScript MVVM (a modern variant of MVC) library that makes it easier to create rich, desktop-like user interfaces with JavaScript and HTML. It uses observers to make your UI automatically stay in sync with an underlying data model, along with a powerful and extensible set of declarative bindings to enable productive development.
        Flux
        Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.
        GraphQL Cache
        A custom middleware for graphql-ruby that handles key construction and cache reads/writes transparently.
        Apollo
        Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes.

        We started rebuilding our dashboard components using React from AngularJS over 3 years ago and, in order to have predictable client-side state management we introduced Redux.js inside our stack because of the popularity it gained inside the JavaScript community; that said, the number of lines of codes needed to implement even the simplest form was unnecessarily high, from a simple form to a more complex component like our team management page.

        By switching our state management to MobX we removed approximately 40% of our boilerplate code and simplified our front-end development flow, which in the ends allowed us to focus more into product features rather than architectural choices.

        Frontend choice was basically pre-ordained to be React. Seems like a strong choice on merits alone, plus I needed to learn it to stay current. I never liked Redux.js from the first time I tried to work with it, but a mate had recommended MobX and after watching a few videos I felt like I could fit the mental model of hit in my head. Using Material-UI which is a great timesaver and make sure I throw a few bucks their way every month via the open source collective.

        Defaulted to Rails with PostgreSQL just because that's where my past strength as a dev had been. First prototype was in Go but was struggling a bit with the quality of libraries I needed so I went back to old faithful.

        As soon as TypeScript was supported by default in Create React App I ported everything over. That combined with swagger code gen has given me really good type safety from the API boundary and above. I semi-regret the Go/Rails decision because I miss the type safety despite pain points with libraries.

        I will probably look to flip back to Go gradually (probably via lambda) at a point where it makes sense for the business.
