Open-Registry vs RequireJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Open-Registry as "A JavaScript Package Registry funded, developed and maintained by the community". To allow people to control the development, funding and support of the registry itself, by making it fully open-source and transparent for its user and the public. On the other hand, RequireJS is detailed as "JavaScript file and module loader". RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

Open-Registry and RequireJS can be primarily classified as "Front End Package Manager" tools.

Open-Registry and RequireJS are both open source tools. RequireJS with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Open-Registry with 230 GitHub stars and 5 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to Open-Registry and RequireJS?
          npm
          npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.
          Yarn
          Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.
          Bower
          Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
          Browserify
          Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
          Component
          Component's philosophy is the UNIX philosophy of the web - to create a platform for small, reusable components that consist of JS, CSS, HTML, images, fonts, etc. With its well-defined specs, using Component means not worrying about most frontend problems such as package management, publishing components to a registry, or creating a custom build process for every single app.

          Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.

          No real definitive reason, I find it to be the most natural way to import libraries and code in nodejs (prior to ES6 / import).

          The RequireJS package manager is used by various web applications and services to manage dependencies on 3rd party libraries.

          Very nice way to structure a project, as long as you know it will not be a hybrid app.

          RequireJS is the main component until Magento 2.2.x for frontend development.
