Ramda vs RxJS: What are the differences?

Ramda: A practical functional library for JavaScript programmers. It emphasizes a purer functional style. Immutability and side-effect free functions are at the heart of its design philosophy. This can help you get the job done with simple, elegant code; RxJS: The Reactive Extensions for JavaScript. RxJS is a library for reactive programming using Observables, to make it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. This project is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS with better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface.

Ramda and RxJS are primarily classified as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" and "Concurrency Frameworks" tools respectively.

Ramda and RxJS are both open source tools. RxJS with 19.7K GitHub stars and 2.26K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Ramda with 16.6K GitHub stars and 1.07K GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to Ramda and RxJS?
      Lodash
      A JavaScript utility library delivering consistency, modularity, performance, & extras. It provides utility functions for common programming tasks using the functional programming paradigm.
      Underscore
      A JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects.
      Immutable.js
      Immutable provides Persistent Immutable List, Stack, Map, OrderedMap, Set, OrderedSet and Record. They are highly efficient on modern JavaScript VMs by using structural sharing via hash maps tries and vector tries as popularized by Clojure and Scala, minimizing the need to copy or cache data.
      Modernizr
      It’s a collection of superfast tests or detects as we like to call them which run as your web page loads, then you can use the results to tailor the experience to the user. It tells you what HTML, CSS and JavaScript features the user’s browser has to offer.
