RequireJS vs Verdaccio: What are the differences?

What is RequireJS? JavaScript file and module loader. RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

What is Verdaccio? A lightweight private npm proxy registry. A simple, zero-config-required local private npm registry. Comes out of the box with its own tiny database, and the ability to proxy other registries (eg. npmjs.org), caching the downloaded modules along the way.

RequireJS and Verdaccio belong to "Front End Package Manager" category of the tech stack.

RequireJS and Verdaccio are both open source tools. RequireJS with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Verdaccio with 7.19K GitHub stars and 656 GitHub forks.

What are some alternatives to RequireJS and Verdaccio?
Browserify
Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
Webpack
A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows to load parts for the application on demand. Through "loaders" modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.
npm
npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.
Yarn
Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.
Bower
Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
