Orleans vs RxJS: What are the differences?

Orleans: An approach to building distributed applications in .NET. Orleans is a framework that provides a straightforward approach to building distributed high-scale computing applications, without the need to learn and apply complex concurrency or other scaling patterns. It was created by Microsoft Research and designed for use in the cloud; RxJS: The Reactive Extensions for JavaScript. RxJS is a library for reactive programming using Observables, to make it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. This project is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS with better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface.

Orleans and RxJS belong to "Concurrency Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Orleans and RxJS are both open source tools. RxJS with 19.7K GitHub stars and 2.26K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Orleans with 5.11K GitHub stars and 1.24K GitHub forks.
