SockJS vs Underscore: What are the differences?

Developers describe SockJS as "A WebSocket emulation". It gives you a coherent, cross-browser, Javascript API which creates a low latency, full duplex, cross-domain communication channel between the browser and the web server, with WebSockets or without. 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.

SockJS and Underscore can be categorized as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" tools.

SockJS and Underscore are both open source tools. Underscore with 24.7K GitHub stars and 5.41K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than SockJS with 1.73K GitHub stars and 278 GitHub forks.
