Rails Spring vs Spring Boot: What are the differences?
Developers describe Rails Spring as "Rails application preloader". Spring is a Rails application preloader. It speeds up development by keeping your application running in the background so you don't need to boot it every time you run a test, rake task or migration. On the other hand, Spring Boot is detailed as "Create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss". Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
Rails Spring and Spring Boot are primarily classified as "Rails Testing" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
Rails Spring and Spring Boot are both open source tools. It seems that Spring Boot with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rails Spring with 2.51K GitHub stars and 275 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Spring Boot has a broader approval, being mentioned in 333 company stacks & 617 developers stacks; compared to Rails Spring, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
