Realm vs Redux Persist: What are the differences?
Realm: Realm makes it easy to build reactive apps, realtime collaborative features, and offline-first experiences. The Realm Mobile Platform is a next-generation data layer for applications. Realm is reactive, concurrent, and lightweight, allowing you to work with live, native objects; Redux Persist: A library to persist and rehydrate a redux store. It is a library allowing to save the redux store in the local storage of your browser. It promises to retain the users’ redux-state which is an attractive proposition for most developers.
Some of the features offered by Realm are:
- Feels like Home - Realm’s data structures look like the Objects and Arrays of your language, but provide additional features such as: querying, relationships & graphs, thread safety, and more.
- Memory-Efficient - Realm is not built on SQLite. Instead, a custom C++ core is used to provide memory-efficient access to your data by using Realm objects, which usually consume less RAM than native objects.
- F-F-Fast! - Realm offers extraordinary performance compared to SQLite and other persistence solutions.
On the other hand, Redux Persist provides the following key features:
- ships with react integration
- State Reconciler
