Usage and Integration
When it comes to performance, Immer generally performs better than Immutable.js due to its optimized handling of immutable state updates. Immer is built with performance in mind and utilizes structural sharing techniques to minimize memory usage and update costs. Immutable.js, while providing powerful features, can be less performant, especially with large data structures.
Immer has a simpler API and is easier to learn and use compared to Immutable.js. It provides a simpler and more intuitive approach to immutability, allowing developers to work with mutable-like syntax while ensuring immutability. Immutable.js, on the other hand, has a steeper learning curve due to its comprehensive API and functional programming paradigm.
Community Support and Maintenance
Immutable.js has a larger and more established community support, documentation, and resources compared to Immer. It has been extensively used and tested in production environments. However, Immer is actively maintained and continues to gain popularity, with a growing community and adequate documentation and support.
