.NET vs Tornado: What are the differences?
Developers describe .NET as "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. On the other hand, Tornado is detailed as "A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed". By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
.NET and Tornado can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Tight integration with visual studio" is the primary reason why developers consider .NET over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Tornado.
.NET and Tornado are both open source tools. It seems that Tornado with 18K GitHub stars and 4.98K forks on GitHub has more adoption than .NET with 11.1K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, .NET has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1566 company stacks & 239 developers stacks; compared to Tornado, which is listed in 69 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.
