Trailblazer vs Volt: What are the differences?
Trailblazer: A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers; Volt: A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.
Trailblazer and Volt can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Trailblazer, while over 2 developers mention "Handlebars" as the leading cause for choosing Volt.
Trailblazer and Volt are both open source tools. It seems that Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 GitHub forks.
