Django Channels vs .NET: What are the differences?

Django Channels: It extends Django's abilities beyond HTTP - to handle WebSockets, chat protocols, IoT protocols. It does this by taking the core of Django and adding a fully asynchronous layer underneath, running Django itself in a synchronous mode but handling connections and sockets asynchronously, and giving you the choice to write in either style; .NET: A free, cross-platform, open source developer platform for building many different types of applications. .NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more.

Django Channels and .NET can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Django Channels and .NET are both open source tools. It seems that .NET with 11.4K GitHub stars and 2.48K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Django Channels with 3.94K GitHub stars and 542 GitHub forks.

Stack Exchange, Microsoft, and Starbucks are some of the popular companies that use .NET, whereas Django Channels is used by Webscope.io, NUU, and Deepomatic. .NET has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2009 company stacks & 1588 developers stacks; compared to Django Channels, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

Decisions about Django Channels and .NET

Decided to change all my stack to microsoft technologies for they behave just great together. It is very easy to set up and deploy projects using visual studio and azure. Visual studio is also an amazing IDE, if not the best, when used for C#, it allows you to work in every aspect of your software.

Visual studio templates for ASP.NET MVC are the best I've found compared to django, rails, laravel, and others.
