XMPP vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

What is XMPP? An open XML technology for real-time communication. It is a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration, lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data.

What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

XMPP can be classified as a tool in the "Container Tools" category, while ZeroMQ is grouped under "Message Queue".

ZeroMQ is an open source tool with 5.43K GitHub stars and 1.59K GitHub forks. Here's a link to ZeroMQ's open source repository on GitHub.

Binary.com, GrowSumo, and Runbook are some of the popular companies that use ZeroMQ, whereas XMPP is used by Mendix, Vidyo.io, and Relayo. ZeroMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 88 developers stacks; compared to XMPP, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to XMPP and ZeroMQ?
      MQTT
      It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium.
      Firebase
      Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
      WebRTC
      It is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.
      Socket.IO
      It enables real-time bidirectional event-based communication. It works on every platform, browser or device, focusing equally on reliability and speed.
      SignalR
      SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.
