React Popper is a flexible and powerful library for positioning poppers (tooltip, popover, dropdown, etc.) in React applications. It is built on top of Popper.js, a popular positioning engine, and provides a React-friendly API for creating and managing poppers.

Integration with React
React-popper is built specifically for React and provides a React-friendly API for working with popper.js. It offers hooks and components that make it easy to integrate poppers into React applications. Tippy.js, on the other hand, is a more general-purpose library and requires additional effort to integrate with React.
Features and Customization
Both libraries offer a wide range of features and customization options. React-popper provides a comprehensive set of features for positioning and managing poppers, including modifiers, event handling, and accessibility support. Tippy.js also offers a rich set of features, including different types of tooltips, animations, and custom triggers.
In terms of performance, both libraries are efficient and lightweight. However, React-popper has a smaller bundle size and is optimized for React applications, which can result in better performance in React-specific scenarios.
Community and Support
Both React-popper and Tippy.js have active communities and are well-maintained. They have good documentation, examples, and support channels. However, React-popper benefits from being part of the larger React ecosystem and has a larger user base, which can provide more resources and community support.
