Mongoose vs Pouchdb: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mongoose as "MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment". Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box. On the other hand, Pouchdb is detailed as "Open-source JavaScript database inspired by Apache CouchDB that's designed to run well within the browser". PouchDB enables applications to store data locally while offline, then synchronize it with CouchDB and compatible servers when the application is back online, keeping the user's data in sync no matter where they next login.

Mongoose can be classified as a tool in the "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" category, while Pouchdb is grouped under "Databases".

Mongoose and Pouchdb are both open source tools. Mongoose with 19K GitHub stars and 2.63K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Pouchdb with 12.1K GitHub stars and 1.21K GitHub forks.

PedidosYa, Accenture, and WebbyLab are some of the popular companies that use Mongoose, whereas Pouchdb is used by BrightMachine, Greenkeeper, and SearchBookGo, LLC.. Mongoose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 88 company stacks & 92 developers stacks; compared to Pouchdb, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.
