What is the difference between the two projects? it should be explained somewhere in the documentation, it's confusing... are both the same?

From what I can tell so far the major difference is, that
acdlite/redux-promise does not fire a "pending". You must manually handle that. E.g. when retrieving data you are only "notified" once the action is successful or fails.
Besides that mostly naming differences.

Good point though, it probably makes sense to document it. I actually switched from acdlite/redux-promise due to the missing pending.

I understand. Maybe the README should mention this in a sentence. For some time I thought I needed redux-promise to use redux-promise-middleware

I have never used acdlite/redux-promise, but, yes, I would say the major difference is that this middleware dispatches a PENDING action. This PENDING action allows for optimistic updates, which is something acdlite/redux-promise has not yet implemented. I would also argue the API for this middleware is more transparent and easier to integrate, e.g., you do not need to use redux-actions.

I'll update the README with the differences. Thanks for bringing this up.

A year later, another difference became apparent, and for the benefit of community, someone should mention it. This project is actively maintained, while acdlite/redux-promise is not, judging by the number and age of unaddressed issues and PRs.
