Buffalo vs Revel: 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, Revel is detailed as "A high productivity, full-stack web framework for the Go language". Revel makes it easy to build web applications using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern by relying on conventions that require a certain structure in your application. In return, it is very light on configuration and enables an extremely fast development cycle.
Buffalo and Revel belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
"Go" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Buffalo, while over 12 developers mention "Go" as the leading cause for choosing Revel.
Buffalo and Revel are both open source tools. It seems that Revel with 11.1K GitHub stars and 1.34K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Buffalo with 4.56K GitHub stars and 358 GitHub forks.
