RequireJS vs Pika.dev: What are the differences?

Developers describe RequireJS 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. On the other hand, Pika.dev is detailed as "A JavaScript package registry for the modern web". It is a new kind of package registry for the modern web. It handles formatting, configuring, building and publishing every package on the registry, so that individual authors don't have to.

RequireJS and Pika.dev can be primarily classified as "Front End Package Manager" tools.

RequireJS is an open source tool with 12.4K GitHub stars and 2.34K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RequireJS's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Pika.dev 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.
      pip
      It is the package installer for Python. You can use pip to install packages from the Python Package Index and other indexes.
