Preact vs React.js Boilerplate: What are the differences?
Developers describe Preact as "A fast 3k React alternative". Preact is an attempt to recreate the core value proposition of React (or similar libraries like Mithril) using as little code as possible, with first-class support for ES2015. Currently the library is around 3kb (minified & gzipped). On the other hand, React.js Boilerplate is detailed as "🔥 Quick setup for performance orientated, offline-first React.js apps". Quick setup for new performance orientated, offline–first React.js applications featuring Redux, hot–reloading, PostCSS, react-router, ServiceWorker, AppCache, FontFaceObserver and Mocha.
Preact and React.js Boilerplate are both open source tools. Preact with 23.1K GitHub stars and 1.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React.js Boilerplate with 22.9K GitHub stars and 4.59K GitHub forks.
