SpaceVim vs VimR: What are the differences?

Developers describe SpaceVim as "Like spacemacs, but for vim". SpaceVim is a Modular configuration, a bundle of custom settings and plugins, for Vim. It got inspired by spacemacs. On the other hand, VimR is detailed as "Refined Vim Experience for OS X". Project VimR is an attempt to refine the Vim experience. The goal is to build an editor that uses Vim inside with many of the convenience GUI features similar to those present in modern editors for Mac.

SpaceVim can be classified as a tool in the "Tools for Text Editors" category, while VimR is grouped under "Text Editor".

SpaceVim and VimR are both open source tools. It seems that SpaceVim with 11.5K GitHub stars and 957 forks on GitHub has more adoption than VimR with 4.15K GitHub stars and 121 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to SpaceVim and VimR?
      Spacemacs
      Since version 0.101.0 and later Spacemacs totally abolishes the frontiers between Vim and Emacs. The user can now choose his/her preferred editing style and enjoy all the Spacemacs features. Even better, it is possible to dynamically switch between the two styles seamlessly which makes it possible for programmers with different styles to do seat pair programming using the same editor.
      Vim
      Vim is an advanced text editor that seeks to provide the power of the de-facto Unix editor 'Vi', with a more complete feature set. Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems. Vim is distributed free as charityware.
      Neovim
      Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to: simplify maintenance and encourage contributions, split the work between multiple developers, enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source, and improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture.
      Oni
      ONI is a NeoVim front-end UI with rich IDE-like UI integration points, drawing inspiration from VSCode, Atom, and LightTable. IDE powered by Neovim + React + Electron.
      ReSharper
      It is a popular developer productivity extension for Microsoft Visual Studio. It automates most of what can be automated in your coding routines. It finds compiler errors, runtime errors, redundancies, and code smells right as you type, suggesting intelligent corrections for them.
