Javascript Question

Why use Redux-Observable over Redux-Saga?

I have used Redux-Saga. Code written with it is easy to reason so far, except JS generator function is messing up my head from time to time. From my understanding, Redux-Observable can achieve the similar job that handles side effects but without using generator function.

However, docs from Redux-Observable does not provide many opinions of why it is superior against Redux-Saga. I would want to know whether not using generator function is the only benefit of using Redux-Observable. And what could be the downsides, gotcha or compromises from using Redux-Observable instead of Redux-Saga? Thanks in advance.


We don't currently provide any reason redux-observable is better than redux-saga because...it's not.
