ent vs Apache Sling: What are the differences?

Developers describe ent as "An entity framework for Go (by Facebook)". It is a simple, yet powerful entity framework for Go, that makes it easy to build and maintain applications with large data-models. On the other hand, Apache Sling is detailed as "Innovative web framework that is intended to bring back the fun to web development". It is a framework for RESTful web-applications based on an extensible content tree. It maps HTTP request URLs to content resources based on the request's path, extension and selectors. Using convention over configuration, requests are processed by scripts and servlets, dynamically selected based on the current resource. This fosters meaningful URLs and resource driven request processing, while the modular nature of Sling allows for specialized server instances that include only what is needed.

ent can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Apache Sling is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Some of the features offered by ent are:

  • Easily model database schema as a graph structure
  • Define schema as a programmatic Go code
  • Static typing based on code generation

On the other hand, Apache Sling provides the following key features:

  • REST based web framework
  • Content-driven, using a JCR content repository
  • Powered by OSGi
