Macaron vs Volt: What are the differences?
Developers describe Macaron as "A high productive and modular web framework in Go". Macaron is a modular web framework for Go with middlewares that allow you to easily plugin/unplugin features for your Macaron applications. On the other hand, Volt is detailed as "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.
Macaron and Volt can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Some of the features offered by Macaron are:

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
