What about RxJS based state management like Akita or MiniRx? VueRx seems to be popular, so why not use RxJS state management?

The biggest reason is that it isnโ€™t necessary.

Where Rx shines in the FE is in Angular, because itโ€™s core, popular libraries, and community all embrace it.

Vueโ€™s reactivity system and the composition API get you propagation of change with requiring Rx.

All that said, I prefer reactive event based approaches to state and application management. I personally mix Rx with the native Vue APIs, but thatโ€™s mostly just so I can use a Subject to broadcast events.
