Flux vs Select2: What are the differences?

Flux: Application Architecture for Building User Interfaces. Flux is the application architecture that Facebook uses for building client-side web applications. It complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. It's more of a pattern rather than a formal framework, and you can start using Flux immediately without a lot of new code; Select2: The jQuery replacement for select boxes. It gives you a customizable select box with support for searching, tagging, remote data sets, infinite scrolling, and many other highly used options. It comes with support for RTL environments, searching with diacritics and over 40 languages built-in.
