Buffalo vs Echo: What are the differences?
What is Buffalo? 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.
What is Echo? Golang HTTP server framework. Echo is a fast and unfancy HTTP server framework for Go (Golang). Up to 10x faster than the rest.
Buffalo belongs to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack, while Echo can be primarily classified under "Microframeworks (Backend)".
"Go" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Buffalo, while over 7 developers mention "Highly customizable" as the leading cause for choosing Echo.
Buffalo and Echo are both open source tools. It seems that Echo with 14.2K GitHub stars and 1.28K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Buffalo with 4.56K GitHub stars and 358 GitHub forks.
