Anvil vs Deis: What are the differences?
What is Anvil? 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)!.
What is Deis? Open Source PaaS that builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow. Deis can deploy any application or service that can run inside a Docker container. In order to be scaled horizontally, applications must follow Heroku's 12-factor methodology and store state in external backing services.
Anvil and Deis can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Anvil are:
- Drag and drop UI builder
- Full-stack Python
- Client-side Python
On the other hand, Deis provides the following key features:
- Deis can deploy any language or framework using a Dockerfile
- If you don't have a Dockerfile, Deis includes Heroku buildpacks for Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, Clojure, Scala, Play, PHP, Perl, Dart and Go.
- Deis can be deployed on any system that supports CoreOS including your workstation, as well as most public clouds, private clouds and bare metal.
Deis is an open source tool with 6.12K GitHub stars and 863 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Deis's open source repository on GitHub.
