Horizon vs SignalR: What are the differences?

Horizon: A realtime, open-source JavaScript back end from RethinkDB *. Horizon provides a complete backend that makes it dramatically simpler to build, deploy, manage, and scale engaging JavaScript web and mobile apps. Horizon is extensible, integrates with the Node.js stack, and allows building modern, arbitrarily complex applications; *SignalR:** A new library for ASP.NET developers that makes developing real-time web functionality easy. SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.

Horizon and SignalR can be primarily classified as "Realtime Backend / API" tools.

Horizon and SignalR are both open source tools. SignalR with 7.73K GitHub stars and 2.19K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Horizon with 6.77K GitHub stars and 386 GitHub forks.
