Go vs Lumen: What are the differences?
Go: 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; Lumen: The stunningly fast PHP micro-framework by Laravel. Laravel Lumen is a stunningly fast PHP micro-framework for building web applications with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Lumen attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as routing, database abstraction, queueing, and caching.
Go can be classified as a tool in the "Languages" category, while Lumen is grouped under "Microframeworks (Backend)".
"High-performance" is the primary reason why developers consider Go over the competitors, whereas "API" was stated as the key factor in picking Lumen.
Go and Lumen are both open source tools. It seems that Go with 59.6K GitHub stars and 8.25K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lumen with 6.29K GitHub stars and 833 GitHub forks.
Slack, Lyft, and Shopify are some of the popular companies that use Go, whereas Lumen is used by Next, Index.co, and Uptime Robot. Go has a broader approval, being mentioned in 892 company stacks & 589 developers stacks; compared to Lumen, which is listed in 24 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.
