Seq vs Zap: What are the differences?
What is Seq? A log server that runs on a central machine. It is the easiest way to collect, search, analyze and alert on structured log data. Structured logging preserves the individual property values, as well as the text, associated with each event.
What is Zap? Blazing fast, structured, leveled logging in Go (by Uber). Zap takes a different approach. It includes a reflection-free, zero-allocation JSON encoder, and the base Logger strives to avoid serialization overhead and allocations wherever possible. By building the high-level SugaredLogger on that foundation, zap lets users choose when they need to count every allocation and when they'd prefer a more familiar, loosely typed API.
Seq and Zap belong to "Logging Tools" category of the tech stack.
Zap is an open source tool with 7.43K GitHub stars and 569 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Zap's open source repository on GitHub.
