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.
