Conductor vs seneca: What are the differences?
Conductor: A microservices orchestration engine that runs in the cloud *. Conductor is an orchestration engine that runs in the cloud; *seneca:** A Micro-Services toolkit for Node.js. Seneca is a toolkit for organizing the business logic of your app. You can break down your app into "stuff that happens", rather than focusing on data models or managing dependencies.
Conductor and seneca can be primarily classified as "Microservices" tools.
Some of the features offered by Conductor are:
- Allow creating complex process / business flows in which individual task is implemented by a microservice.
- A JSON DSL based blueprint defines the execution flow.
- Provide visibility and traceability into the these process flows.
On the other hand, seneca provides the following key features:
- pattern matching: a wonderfully flexible way to handle business requirements
- transport independence: how messages get to the right server is not something you should have to worry about
- maturity: 5 years in production (before we called it micro-services), but was once taken out by lightning
Conductor and seneca are both open source tools. It seems that Conductor with 1.9K GitHub stars and 571 forks on GitHub has more adoption than seneca with 3 GitHub stars and 1 GitHub forks.
