.NET vs Nancy: What are the differences?
What is .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.
What is Nancy? A lightweight web framework for .NET. Nancy is a lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .NET Framework/Core and Mono. The goal of the framework is to stay out of the way as much as possible and provide a super-duper-happy-path to all interactions.
.NET can be classified as a tool in the "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category, while Nancy is grouped under "Microframeworks (Backend)".
"Tight integration with visual studio" is the primary reason why developers consider .NET over the competitors, whereas "C#" was stated as the key factor in picking Nancy.
.NET and Nancy are both open source tools. It seems that .NET with 11.2K GitHub stars and 2.41K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Nancy with 6.8K GitHub stars and 1.46K GitHub forks.
