Shepherd.js vs Underscore: What are the differences?

Developers describe Shepherd.js as "Guide your users through a tour of your app". Shepherd is a JavaScript library that allows you to easily create site tours to guide users through your app or website. It leverages Tippy.js, another open source library, to render dialogs for each tour "step". On the other hand, Underscore is detailed as "JavaScript's utility _ belt". A JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects.

Shepherd.js and Underscore belong to "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Shepherd.js and Underscore are both open source tools. It seems that Underscore with 24.7K GitHub stars and 5.41K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Shepherd.js with 7.75K GitHub stars and 452 GitHub forks.
