React Monocle vs Reactotron: What are the differences?
Developers describe React Monocle as "A developer tool for generating visual representations of your React app's component hierarchy". React Monocle parses through your React source files to generate a visual tree graph representing your React component hierarchy. The tree is then displayed along with a live copy of your application. This is done by using your un-minified bundle file to inject wrapper functions around setState calls in order to have our tree display real-time feedback. On the other hand, Reactotron is detailed as "A CLI and OS X app for inspecting your React JS and React Native apps". Plug it into your app as a dev dependency so it adds nothing to your product builds. Use it to: view your application state, show API requests & responses, perform quick performance benchmarks, and more.
React Monocle and Reactotron can be categorized as "MVC" tools.
React Monocle and Reactotron are both open source tools. Reactotron with 10.4K GitHub stars and 604 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React Monocle with 2.4K GitHub stars and 88 GitHub forks.
