pg-amqp-bridge vs Starling: What are the differences?
Developers describe pg-amqp-bridge as "Send Messages from PostgreSQL to RabbitMQ". This tool enables a decoupled architecture, think sending emails when a user signs up. Instead of having explicit code in your signup function that does the work (and slows down your response), you just have to worry about inserting the row into the database. On the other hand, Starling is detailed as "A light weight server for reliable distributed message passing". Starling is a powerful but simple messaging server that enables reliable distributed queuing with an absolutely minimal overhead. It speaks the MemCache protocol for maximum cross-platform compatibility. Any language that speaks MemCache can take advantage of Starling's queue facilities.
pg-amqp-bridge and Starling can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.
pg-amqp-bridge and Starling are both open source tools. Starling with 468 GitHub stars and 63 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than pg-amqp-bridge with 251 GitHub stars and 14 GitHub forks.
