PostGIS vs ReactiveMongo: What are the differences?
PostGIS: Open source spatial database. PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL; ReactiveMongo: Non-blocking, Reactive MongoDB Driver for Scala. ReactiveMongo is designed to avoid any kind of blocking request. Every operation returns immediately, freeing the running thread and resuming execution when it is over. Accessing the database is not a bottleneck anymore.
PostGIS and ReactiveMongo belong to "Database Tools" category of the tech stack.
PostGIS and ReactiveMongo are both open source tools. It seems that ReactiveMongo with 797 GitHub stars and 231 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.
