React Redux vs Underscore: What are the differences?

Developers describe React Redux as "React bindings for Redux". It is the official React binding for Redux. It lets your React components read data from a Redux store, and dispatch actions to the store to update data. It is designed to work with React's component model. You define how to extract the values your component needs from Redux, and your component receives them as props. 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.

React Redux and Underscore can be primarily classified as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" tools.

React Redux 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 React Redux with 17.7K GitHub stars and 2.62K GitHub forks.

Decisions about React Redux and Underscore

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) provides standard data objects in JSON format for the healthcare industry. Since JSON objects are hierarchical and tree-like, we had a need to defensively 'pluck' fields from our JSON objects and do lots of mapping. We tried jQuery and Underscore and a few other technologies like FHIRPath; but Lodash has been the most well supported, works in the most contexts, has the cleanest syntax, etc. We particularly like the ES6 version of Lodash, where we can import the method names directly, without resorting to * or _ syntax. We got hooked on the 'get' function to defensively pluck fields from objects without crashing our user interface, and have found countless uses for the other lodash functions throughout our apps. Lodash is great for developing and optimizing algorithms.

    What are some alternatives to React Redux and Underscore?
    React
    Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
    React Native
    React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native.
    Angular 2
    It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
    Flux
    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.
    MobX
    MobX is a battle tested library that makes state management simple and scalable by transparently applying functional reactive programming (TFRP). React and MobX together are a powerful combination. React renders the application state by providing mechanisms to translate it into a tree of renderable components. MobX provides the mechanism to store and update the application state that React then uses.
