In this article, we will discuss how different (or similar) it is to use Glimmer as compared with React. Glimmer is a new library in the Ember ecosystem, which was released in March.

To some extent, Glimmer is comparable with React because the scope of both libraries is very similar: UI components for the web. However, let’s take a look at some examples to highlight some of the similarities, as well as the differences.
