.NET vs Trailblazer: What are the differences?

.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; Trailblazer: A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

.NET and Trailblazer belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Tight integration with visual studio" is the primary reason why developers consider .NET over the competitors, whereas "Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" was stated as the key factor in picking Trailblazer.

.NET and Trailblazer are both open source tools. It seems that .NET with 11K GitHub stars and 2.37K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 128 GitHub forks.

Microsoft has done an incredible job of keeping the .NET Framework powerful and stable. It is well designed and keeps getting more robust with each release. It isn't the most popular technology in this space, but I think a good case can be made to use .NET in many new projects.

As we started on Windows Phone we use C# and .NET for most of our apps and sites. Being a small team of 2, using .NET enables us to work on each part of the service without having to switch to different languages.

I use .NET alongside with C# since my university studies, and I really enjoy it. Especially .NET Core, which is the best thing that happened to Microsoft since... ever.
