Django vs Lumen: What are the differences?
Developers describe Django as "The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines". Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. On the other hand, Lumen is detailed as "The stunningly fast PHP micro-framework by Laravel". Laravel Lumen is a stunningly fast PHP micro-framework for building web applications with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Lumen attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as routing, database abstraction, queueing, and caching.
Django and Lumen are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools respectively.
"Rapid development" is the top reason why over 491 developers like Django, while over 16 developers mention "API" as the leading cause for choosing Lumen.
Django and Lumen are both open source tools. It seems that Django with 42.3K GitHub stars and 18.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lumen with 6.29K GitHub stars and 833 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Django has a broader approval, being mentioned in 979 company stacks & 882 developers stacks; compared to Lumen, which is listed in 24 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.
I have used both the tools . Both of them are super awesome , very reliable and their learning curve is also super easy. But, the reason I choose Ruby on Rails over Django is the fact that the dependency injection is super easy in Rails than Django. What I mean is the fact that, Django requires a lot of import statement to do a lot of work, which remembering is not so easy and even after that you may need to write a lot of code. But Ruby on Rails uses gem to add addition feature or dependency in the project. Which requires just copying the gem statement from github and pasting it in the Gemfile, then running bundle install(these days just bundle works super fine). And there you are with the new feature in your app. You can see this with the example of Authentication, where in Django you require several steps like adding class based views and many more, but in rails it's just as easy as installing the 'devise' gem . And if you want to make it beautiful use bootstrap_template gem to make it look prettier. Now with Rails 6 , Rails is a total developer's fervent friend because it has come up with features like Action Mail and Action Text.
i find python quite resourceful. given the bulk of libraries that python has and the trends of the tech i find django which runs on python to be the framework of choice to the upcoming web services and application. Laravel on the other hand which is powered by PHP is also quite resourceful and great for startups and common web applications.
Since I came from python I had two choices: #django or #flask. It felt like it was a better idea to go for #django considering I was building a blogging platform, this is kind of what #django was made for. On the other hand, #rails seems to be a fantastic framework to get things done. Although I do not regret any of my time spent on developing with #django I want to give #rails a try some day in the future for the sake of curiosity.
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.
