Objective-C vs Vapor: What are the differences?

What is Objective-C? The primary programming language you use when writing software for OS X and iOS. Objective-C is a superset of the C programming language and provides object-oriented capabilities and a dynamic runtime. Objective-C inherits the syntax, primitive types, and flow control statements of C and adds syntax for defining classes and methods. It also adds language-level support for object graph management and object literals while providing dynamic typing and binding, deferring many responsibilities until runtime.

What is Vapor? A type-safe web framework for Swift. Vapor is the first true web framework for Swift. It provides a beautifully expressive foundation for your app without tying you to any single server implementation.

Objective-C and Vapor are primarily classified as "Languages" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

"Ios" is the top reason why over 211 developers like Objective-C, while over 4 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing Vapor.

Vapor is an open source tool with 16.8K GitHub stars and 997 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Vapor's open source repository on GitHub.

Uber Technologies, Instagram, and Pinterest are some of the popular companies that use Objective-C, whereas Vapor is used by Applicodo, N26, and Nodes. Objective-C has a broader approval, being mentioned in 851 company stacks & 363 developers stacks; compared to Vapor, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

1 code deploys for both: Android and iOS. There is a huge community behind React Native. And one of the best things is Expo. Expo uses React Native to make everything even more and more simple. Awesome technologies. Some other important thing is that while using React Native, you are reusing all JavaScript knowledge you have in your team. You can move easily a frontend dev to develop mobile applications.

A huge PRO of Expo, is that it includes a full building process. You run 1 line in the terminal, and 10 minutes after you have 2 builds done. Double check EAS Expo.

What are some alternatives to Objective-C and Vapor?
Swift
Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
Java
Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
PHP
