Anvil vs AppScale: What are the differences?
Developers describe Anvil as "Drag and Drop Python Web App Builder". Anvil is a platform for building and hosting full-stack web apps written entirely in Python. Drag & drop your UI, then write Python on the front-end and back-end to make it all work. Web development has never been this easy (or fast)!. On the other hand, AppScale is detailed as "An open source implementation of Google App Engine. Run your applications in any cloud- public, private or hybrid". AppScale is a platform that allows users to deploy applications developed using the Google App Engine APIs over Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Google Compute Engine, Eucalyptus, Openstack, CloudStack, as well as KVM and VirtualBox.
Anvil and AppScale belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Anvil are:
