Showdown vs UglifyJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Showdown as "JavaScript port of Markdown". Showdown lets you add in-browser preview to existing Markdown apps. Any app that accepts HTML input can now be made to speak Markdown by modifying the input pages's HTML. On the other hand, UglifyJS is detailed as "JavaScript parser / mangler / compressor / beautifier library for NodeJS". This package implements a general-purpose JavaScript parser/compressor/beautifier toolkit. It is developed on NodeJS, but it should work on any JavaScript platform supporting the CommonJS module system (and if your platform of choice doesn’t support CommonJS, you can easily implement it, or discard the exports.* lines from UglifyJS sources).

Showdown and UglifyJS can be primarily classified as "Javascript Utilities & Libraries" tools.

Showdown and UglifyJS are both open source tools. Showdown with 9.21K GitHub stars and 1.27K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than UglifyJS with 8.12K GitHub stars and 761 GitHub forks.
