.NET vs Volt: 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 Volt? A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.

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

Some of the features offered by .NET are:

  • Multiple languages: You can write .NET apps in C#, F#, or Visual Basic.
  • Cross Platform: Whether you're working in C#, F#, or Visual Basic, your code will run natively on any compatible OS.
  • Consistent API & Libraries: To extend functionality, Microsoft and others maintain a healthy package ecosystem built on .NET Standard.

On the other hand, Volt provides the following key features:

  • Instead of syncing data between the client and server via HTTP, volt uses a persistent connection between the client and server
  • When data is updated on one client, it is updated in the database and any other listening clients (with almost no setup code needed)
  • Pages HTML is written in a handlebars like template language

"Tight integration with visual studio" is the top reason why over 245 developers like .NET, while over 2 developers mention "Handlebars" as the leading cause for choosing Volt.

.NET and Volt are both open source tools. .NET with 11.1K GitHub stars and 2.4K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 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.
