Volt vs Bolts: What are the differences?
Developers describe Volt as "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. On the other hand, Bolts is detailed as "A collection of low-level libraries". It is a collection of low-level libraries designed to make developing mobile apps easier.
Volt and Bolts can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
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, Bolts provides the following key features:
