Bazel vs Section: What are the differences?

Bazel: Correct, reproducible, fast builds for everyone. Bazel is a build tool that builds code quickly and reliably. It is used to build the majority of Google's software, and thus it has been designed to handle build problems present in Google's development environment; Section: Run compute workloads on a distributed edge. Edge Compute Platform gives Dev and Ops engineers the access and control they need to run compute workloads on a distributed edge.

Bazel belongs to "Java Build Tools" category of the tech stack, while Section can be primarily classified under "Web Cache".

Some of the features offered by Bazel are:

  • Multi-language support: Bazel supports Java, Objective-C and C++ out of the box, and can be extended to support arbitrary programming languages.
  • High-level build language: Projects are described in the BUILD language, a concise text format that describes a project as sets of small interconnected libraries, binaries and tests. By contrast, with tools like Make you have to describe individual files and compiler invocations.
  • Multi-platform support: The same tool and the same BUILD files can be used to build software for different architectures, and even different platforms. At Google, we use Bazel to build both server applications running on systems in our data centers and client apps running on mobile phones.

On the other hand, Section provides the following key features:

  • Varnish Cache
  • Nginx/Lua
  • SiteSpect

"Fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Bazel over the competitors, whereas "Realtime stats" was stated as the key factor in picking Section.

Bazel is an open source tool with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Bazel's open source repository on GitHub.
