Buffalo vs .NET Core: What are the differences?

Developers describe Buffalo as "MVC Web Framework for Go". Buffalo is Go web framework. Yeah, I hate the word "framework" too! Buffalo is different though. Buffalo doesn't want to re-invent wheels like routing and templating. Buffalo is glue that wraps all of the best packages available and makes them all play nicely together. On the other hand, .NET Core is detailed as "An Open Source, General-Purpose Development Platform Maintained by Microsoft and the .NET Community". Cross-platform (supporting Windows, macOS, and Linux) and can be used to build device, cloud, and IoT applications.

Buffalo and .NET Core can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Go" is the primary reason why developers consider Buffalo over the competitors, whereas "Great performance" was stated as the key factor in picking .NET Core.

Buffalo and .NET Core are both open source tools. It seems that .NET Core with 11.2K GitHub stars and 2.41K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Buffalo with 4.64K GitHub stars and 362 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Buffalo and .NET Core

I was researching multiple high performance, concurent//parallel languages for the needs of authentication and authorization server, to be built on microservice architecture and Linux OS. Node.js with its asynchronous behavior and event loop suits the case best. Python Django & Flash turns to be slower and .NET Core & Framework wasn't the best choice for the Linux environment at the time (summer 2018).

I also tested Go lang and Rust, although they didn't meet the quick prototyping criteria as both languages are young and lacking libraries or battle-tested ORM.

There has been a lot of buzz around having PostgreSQL for ASP.NET Core 3.1 web apps. But Configuring Identity Server 4 with PostgreSQL is a real challenge. I've made a simple video to configure the ASP.NET Core 3.1 based Web application that uses AngualrJS as front end with Single Page App capabilities with Identity Server 4 talking to the PostgreSQL database. Check out this Video tutorial on how to do that in detail http://bit.ly/2EkotL5 You can access the entire code here on github http://bit.ly/35okpFj
