Micro vs seneca: What are the differences?

What is Micro? A microservice toolkit. Micro provides the core requirements for building and managing microservices. It consists of a set of libraries and tools which are primarily geared towards development in the programming language Go, however looks to solve for other languages via HTTP using a Sidecar.

What is seneca? A Micro-Services toolkit for Node.js. Seneca is a toolkit for organizing the business logic of your app. You can break down your app into "stuff that happens", rather than focusing on data models or managing dependencies.

Micro and seneca can be primarily classified as "Microservices" tools.

Some of the features offered by Micro are:

  • API
  • CLI
  • Web UI

On the other hand, seneca provides the following key features:

  • pattern matching: a wonderfully flexible way to handle business requirements
  • transport independence: how messages get to the right server is not something you should have to worry about
  • maturity: 5 years in production (before we called it micro-services), but was once taken out by lightning

Micro and seneca are both open source tools. Micro with 6.34K GitHub stars and 520 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than seneca with 3 GitHub stars and 1 GitHub forks.
