Apache Dubbo vs Django REST framework: What are the differences?

What is Apache Dubbo? A high performance Java RPC framework. It is a high-performance, light weight, java based RPC framework. Dubbo offers three key functionalities, which include interface based remote call, fault tolerance & load balancing, and automatic service registration & discovery.

What is Django REST framework? Web APIs for Django. It is a powerful and flexible toolkit that makes it easy to build Web APIs.

Apache Dubbo belongs to "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" category of the tech stack, while Django REST framework can be primarily classified under "Microframeworks (Backend)".

Some of the features offered by Apache Dubbo are:

  • Transparent interface based RPC
  • Intelligent load balancing
  • Automatic service registration and discovery

On the other hand, Django REST framework provides the following key features:

  • The Web browsable API is a huge usability win for your developers.
  • Authentication policies including OAuth1a and OAuth2 out of the box.
  • Serialization that supports both ORM and non-ORM data sources.

Apache Dubbo and Django REST framework are both open source tools. Apache Dubbo with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.8K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Django REST framework with 15.9K GitHub stars and 4.66K GitHub forks.

My journey to developing REST APIs started with Flask Restful, and I've found it to be enough for the needs of my project back then. Now that I've started investing more time on personal projects, I've yet to decide if I should move to use Django for writing REST APIs. I often see job posts looking for Python+Django developers, but it's usually for full-stack developers. I'm primarily interested in Data Engineering, so most of my web projects are back end.

Should I continue with what I know (Flask) or move on to Django?

If you want to be a Web developer with knowledge in another frontend and NoSql technology, maybe continue with Flask. However, if you want to create very fast solutions to grow up with a new business and merge these with data analysis and other tools, Django is the answer. Basically read more about the service architecture where you feel more comfortable, Microservice or Monolithic, but please will not married with any because they solve issues to different contexts.

I have just started learning Python 3 weeks ago. I want to create a REST API using python. The API will be used to save form data in an Oracle database. The front end is using AngularJS 8 with Angular Material. In python, there are so many frameworks to develop REST APIs.

I am looking for some suggestions which REST framework to choose?

Here are some features I am looking for:

  • Easy integration and unit testing, like in Angular. We just want to run a command.

  • Code packaging, like in java maven project we can build and package. I am looking for something which I can push in as an artifact and deploy whole code as a package.

  • Support for swagger/ OpenAPI

  • Support for JSON Web Token

  • Support for test case coverage report

Framework can have features included or can be available by extension. Also, you can suggest a framework other than the ones I have mentioned.

For starters flask provides a beautiful and easy way to create REST APIs. Also its supported by excellent beginner docs as well as a very active community. Another good thing with Flask is its widely available list of plugins which allow you to build as you go. Its also good in performance and can scale to a quite decent level. However, if you are sure your project is going to be fairly big, it would be better to start with Django as it provides a lot of features out of the box and is extremely stable in performance. Both these frameworks have support for Swagger, JWT, Coverage Report although you have to install plugins for them. Deploying both of these are fairly simple and there is huge documentation available. Django has one of the best documentations I have come across. I hope I was able to answer your queries.
