Mongoose vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

What is Mongoose? 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.

What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

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

"Well documented" is the top reason why over 14 developers like Mongoose, while over 17 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing ZeroMQ.

Mongoose and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. It seems that Mongoose with 19K GitHub stars and 2.63K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ZeroMQ with 5.34K GitHub stars and 1.57K GitHub forks.

PedidosYa, Accenture, and WebbyLab are some of the popular companies that use Mongoose, whereas ZeroMQ is used by Binary.com, GrowSumo, and indico. Mongoose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 88 company stacks & 92 developers stacks; compared to ZeroMQ, which is listed in 35 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Mongoose and ZeroMQ?
MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
Anaconda
A free and open-source distribution of the Python and R programming languages for scientific computing, that aims to simplify package management and deployment. Package versions are managed by the package management system conda.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
Mongoid
The philosophy of Mongoid is to provide a familiar API to Ruby developers who have been using Active Record or Data Mapper, while leveraging the power of MongoDB's schemaless and performant document-based design, dynamic queries, and atomic modifier operations.
