Redux vs redux-thunk: What are the differences?

Redux: Predictable state container for JavaScript apps. Redux helps you write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server, and native), and are easy to test. On top of that, it provides a great developer experience, such as live code editing combined with a time traveling debugger; redux-thunk: Thunk middleware for Redux. Redux Thunk middleware allows you to write action creators that return a function instead of an action. The thunk can be used to delay the dispatch of an action, or to dispatch only if a certain condition is met. The inner function receives the store methods dispatch and getState as parameters.

Redux and redux-thunk can be categorized as "State Management Library" tools.

Redux and redux-thunk are both open source tools. It seems that Redux with 49.5K GitHub stars and 12.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than redux-thunk with 12.6K GitHub stars and 683 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Redux has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1036 company stacks & 836 developers stacks; compared to redux-thunk, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 19 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to redux-thunk and Redux?
    Cycle.js
    A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code
    MobX
    MobX is a battle tested library that makes state management simple and scalable by transparently applying functional reactive programming (TFRP). React and MobX together are a powerful combination. React renders the application state by providing mechanisms to translate it into a tree of renderable components. MobX provides the mechanism to store and update the application state that React then uses.
    Flux
    Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code.
    React
    Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
    RxJS
    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.
