JAWS vs Volt: What are the differences?
JAWS and Volt can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Some of the features offered by JAWS are:
- Use No Servers: Never deal with scaling/deploying/maintaing/monitoring servers again.
- Isolated Components: The JAWS back-end is comprised entirely of AWS Lambda Functions.
- Scale Infinitely: A back-end comprised of Lambda functions comes with a ton of concurrency and you can easily enable multi-region redundancy.
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
JAWS and Volt are both open source tools. JAWS with 30.9K GitHub stars and 3.43K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.
