Apollo vs tsuru: What are the differences?

Apollo: GraphQL server for Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa and more. Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes; tsuru: Extensible and open source Platform as a Service software. tsuru is an open source polyglot cloud application platform (PaaS). With tsuru, you don’t need to think about servers at all. You can write apps in the programming language of your choice, back it with add-on resources such as SQL and NoSQL databases, memcached, redis, and many others. You manage your app using the tsuru command-line tool and you deploy code using the Git revision control system, all running on the tsuru infrastructure.

Apollo and tsuru can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

"From the creators of Meteor" is the primary reason why developers consider Apollo over the competitors, whereas "Very receptive to contributions" was stated as the key factor in picking tsuru.

Apollo and tsuru are both open source tools. It seems that Apollo with 7.53K GitHub stars and 935 forks on GitHub has more adoption than tsuru with 3.14K GitHub stars and 421 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Apollo and tsuru
Márton Danóczy

We wanted to save as much time as possible when writing our back-end, therefore Apollo was out of the question, we went for an auto-generated API instead. Hasura looked good in the beginning, but we wanted to retain the ability to add a few manual resolvers and modifications to auto-generated ones, which ruled out Hasura. Postgraphile with its Plug-In architecture was the right choice for us, we never regretted it!
