NestJS vs Volt: What are the differences?

NestJS: A progressive Node.js framework for building efficient and scalable server-side applications by @kammysliwiec. Nest is a framework for building efficient, scalable Node.js server-side applications. It uses progressive JavaScript, is built with TypeScript (preserves compatibility with pure JavaScript) and combines elements of OOP (Object Oriented Programming), FP (Functional Programming), and FRP (Functional Reactive Programming) Under the hood, Nest makes use of Express, but also, provides compatibility with a wide range of other libraries, like e.g. Fastify, allowing for easy use of the myriad third-party plugins which are available.; Volt: 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.

NestJS and Volt can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Some of the features offered by NestJS are:

  • Extensible - Gives you true flexibility by allowing use of any other libraries thanks to modular architecture.
  • Versatile - An adaptable ecosystem that is a fully-fledged backbone for all kinds of server-side applications.
  • Progressive - Takes advantage of latest JavaScript features, bringing design patterns and mature solutions to node.js world.

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

"Powerful but super friendly to work with" is the primary reason why developers consider NestJS over the competitors, whereas "Handlebars" was stated as the key factor in picking Volt.

NestJS and Volt are both open source tools. NestJS with 17.4K GitHub stars and 1.22K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.
