Rails vs Revel: What are the differences?
Developers describe Rails as "Web development that doesn't hurt". Rails is a web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. On the other hand, Revel is detailed as "A high productivity, full-stack web framework for the Go language". Revel makes it easy to build web applications using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern by relying on conventions that require a certain structure in your application. In return, it is very light on configuration and enables an extremely fast development cycle.
Rails and Revel can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Rapid development" is the primary reason why developers consider Rails over the competitors, whereas "Go" was stated as the key factor in picking Revel.
Rails and Revel are both open source tools. Rails with 43.6K GitHub stars and 17.5K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Revel with 11.2K GitHub stars and 1.33K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Rails has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2321 company stacks & 796 developers stacks; compared to Revel, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
