Lodash offers a modular design where you can cherry-pick individual functions or use the entire library. In its full form, Lodash is larger in size compared to Mout. Mout, however, is designed to be more lightweight, allowing you to include only the specific modules you need, resulting in a smaller bundle size.
Both Lodash and Mout provide a comprehensive set of utility functions for common tasks. Lodash offers a broader range of functions, including deep object manipulation, collection operations, and functional programming utilities. Mout focuses on providing small, single-purpose modules that are composable and focused on specific tasks.
Lodash is generally performant and well-optimized. It has been actively optimized and improved over the years to provide good performance. Mout also aims for performance and strives to be faster than comparable utility libraries. However, the specific performance characteristics may vary based on the individual functions used and the context in which they are used.
Community and Support
Lodash benefits from being widely used and having a large community of developers, resulting in extensive documentation, tutorials, and a vibrant ecosystem. Mout, although less popular, still has an active community, and documentation is available. However, the level of support and available resources for Mout might be lower compared to Lodash.
