What is Buffalo?

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 Play?

Play Framework makes it easy to build web applications with Java & Scala. Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture. Built on Akka, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications.

What is Symfony?

Symfony is written with speed and flexibility in mind. It allows developers to build better and easy to maintain websites with PHP. Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.

    Symfony is a set of PHP Components, a Web Application framework, a Philosophy, and a Community — all working together in harmony A framework is a collection of universal, reusable programs that accomplish particular tasks to facilitate the development of software applications. A framework is a pledge of quality, upgradability and maintainability of applications at lower cost. Applications developed using a framework are interoperable with market standards.

    Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.

    Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.

    I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).
