ASP.NET vs Markdown: What are the differences?

What is ASP.NET? An open source web framework for building modern web apps and services with .NET. .NET is a developer platform made up of tools, programming languages, and libraries for building many different types of applications.

What is Markdown? Text-to-HTML conversion tool/syntax for web writers, by John Gruber. Markdown is two things: (1) a plain text formatting syntax; and (2) a software tool, written in Perl, that converts the plain text formatting to HTML.

ASP.NET and Markdown are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Languages" tools respectively.

reddit, StackShare, and Asana are some of the popular companies that use Markdown, whereas ASP.NET is used by Performance Assessment Network (PAN), Making Waves, and Jitbit. Markdown has a broader approval, being mentioned in 756 company stacks & 718 developers stacks; compared to ASP.NET, which is listed in 76 company stacks and 76 developer stacks.

Decisions about ASP.NET and Markdown

When I started on this project as the sole developer, I was new to web development and I was looking at all of the web frameworks available for the job. I had some experience with Ruby on Rails and I had looked into .net for a bit, but when I found Laravel, it felt like the best framework for me to get the product to market. What made me choose Laravel was the easy to read documentation and active community. Rails had great documentation, but lacked some features built in that I wanted out of the box, while .net had a ton of video documentation tutorials, but nothing as straightforward as Laravels. So far, I am happy with the decision I made, and looking forward to the website release!

Comparing to ASP.NET Core MVC or ASP.NET Core Web API Simplify.Web allows you to easily build your web-site or REST API without any additional/complicated setup, covering cases like localization by default. It's projects structure very lightweight, just a minimum amount of what you need to setup ASP.NET Core request pipeline.

It is build on top of Simplify.DI IOC container abstraction, no dependency on Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection and it's syntax. You can easily switch between DryIoc, SimpleInjector, CastleWindsor etc.

Any internal module of Simplify.Web can be easily replaced on extended by your custom module, covering your custom cases.

For HTML pages generation Simplify.Templates can be used allowing you to use just regular plain HTML without additional setup.

Can be easily integrated with Simplify.WindowsServices converting your web application not just to web-application, but a standalone windows service which can also do some background jobs via Simplify.WindowsServices.

And it is open source, of course :)
