React.js Boilerplate vs YUI Library: What are the differences?

Developers describe React.js Boilerplate 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. On the other hand, YUI Library is detailed as "*Open Source JavaScript library for building richly interactive web applications *". It is a free, open source JavaScript and CSS library for building richly interactive web applications. Its lightweight core and modular architecture make it scalable, fast, and robust.

React.js Boilerplate and YUI Library belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by React.js Boilerplate are:

  • Using react-transform-hmr, your changes in the CSS and JS get reflected in the app instantly without refreshing the page. That means that the current application state persists even when you change something in the underlying code! For a very good explanation and demo, watch Dan Abramov himself talking about it at react-europe.
  • Redux is a much better implementation of a flux–like, unidirectional data flow. Redux makes actions composable, reduces the boilerplate code and makes hot–reloading possible in the first place. For a good overview of redux, check out the talk linked above or the official documentation!
  • Babel is a modular JavaScript transpiler that helps to use next generation JavaScript and more, like transformation for JSX, hot loading, error catching etc. Babel has a solid ecosystem of offical preset and plugins.

On the other hand, YUI Library provides the following key features:

  • Lightweight core and modular architecture
  • Scalable, fast, and robust
  • Intuitive and well-documented API

React.js Boilerplate is an open source tool with 23.2K GitHub stars and 4.69K GitHub forks. Here's a link to React.js Boilerplate's open source repository on GitHub.
