Falcon vs Go: What are the differences?
Developers describe Falcon as "High-performance Python framework for building cloud APIs and web app backends". Falcon is a minimalist WSGI library for building speedy web APIs and app backends. We like to think of Falcon as the Dieter Rams of web frameworks. On the other hand, Go is detailed as "An open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software". Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
Falcon can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Go is grouped under "Languages".
"Python" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Falcon, while over 439 developers mention "High-performance" as the leading cause for choosing Go.
Falcon and Go are both open source tools. Go with 59.6K GitHub stars and 8.25K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Falcon with 6.74K GitHub stars and 700 GitHub forks.
Slack, Lyft, and Shopify are some of the popular companies that use Go, whereas Falcon is used by HENNGE, Fivestars, and Vokal. Go has a broader approval, being mentioned in 892 company stacks & 589 developers stacks; compared to Falcon, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.
