Volt vs Beego: What are the differences?
What is Volt? A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.
What is Beego? An open-source, high-performance web framework for the Go programming language. It is a RESTful HTTP framework for the rapid development of Go applications including APIs, web apps and backend services with integrated Go specific features such as interfaces and struct embedding.
Volt and Beego belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Volt are:
- Instead of syncing data between the client and server via HTTP, volt uses a persistent connection between the client and server
- When data is updated on one client, it is updated in the database and any other listening clients (with almost no setup code needed)
- Pages HTML is written in a handlebars like template language
On the other hand, Beego provides the following key features:
- Struct embedding
- Rapid Development
Volt and Beego are both open source tools. It seems that Beego with 21.6K GitHub stars and 4.38K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Volt with 3.29K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.
