Riot vs TuxedoJS: What are the differences?
What is Riot? A React-like user interface micro-library. Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve.
What is TuxedoJS? A feature-complete framework built on React and Flux. TuxedoJS capitalizes on the performance benefits of React and the simplified application architecture of Flux. It abstracts away unnecessary complexity and implements a more accessible and semantic interface for working with Flux and augmented React components in various aspects of the view logic.
Some of the features offered by Riot are:
- Absolutely the smallest possible amount of DOM updates and reflows.
- One way data flow: updates and unmounts are propagated downwards from parent to children.
- Expressions are pre-compiled and cached for high performance.
On the other hand, TuxedoJS provides the following key features:
- Tuxx abstracts away the complexity of Flux with powerful Actions syntax
- Tuxx provides all of the glue code needed to build stores and register them with the TuxxActions dispatcher
- Tuxx provides powerful opinionated React classes that make connecting with your stores, sharing methods with child components, and building high performance components a synch
Riot and TuxedoJS are both open source tools. It seems that Riot with 13.7K GitHub stars and 1.02K forks on GitHub has more adoption than TuxedoJS with 533 GitHub stars and 21 GitHub forks.
