{{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}} vs {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}}: {{dropdowns.invisible.f1.selected}}

Lately you’ve probably heard a lot about {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}} {{dropdowns.invisible.f2.selected}}. Maybe you’ve used it at work, or you’ve been eyeing it for a side project. After all, it’s a leading solution that consistently ranks among the top choices in developer surveys, and lives up to its motto: “A tool that doesn’t suck.”

But what about the shiny new kid on the block, {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}}, billed as “Newer software done right”? Maybe you’re ready to give it a spin, but first you need to convince {{dropdowns.invisible.f7.selected}}, who might be understandably nervous about the change.

At the end of the day it’s all about {{dropdowns.invisible.f8.selected}}, so lets see how these tech titans stack up.

Let’s get started without further ado (except this sentence itself).


To start, we’ll evaluate the technologies along four key metrics:

  • {{dropdowns.invisible.f3.selected}}
  • {{dropdowns.invisible.f4.selected}}
  • {{dropdowns.invisible.f5.selected}}
  • {{dropdowns.invisible.f6.selected}}

Originally started as a side project from {{dropdowns.invisible.f10.selected}}, an enthusiastic core of early adopters soon turned {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}} into a modern powerhouse.

Boasting a {{dropdowns.invisible.f11.selected}} enhanced by an award-winning 4th-gen {{dropdowns.invisible.f12.selected}}, it’s easy to see why {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}} is many people’s first pick.

Not to be outdone on the other hand, {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}} packs a powerful punch too. With best-in-class {{dropdowns.invisible.f13.selected}} and {{dropdowns.invisible.f14.selected}}, many people actually prefer {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}} over {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}}.

Winner: {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}}

When it comes down to it, people fall into two camps: those who pick {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}}, and those who pick {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}}. Both have pros and cons, and recent releases no longer {{dropdowns.invisible.f22.selected}}, so it’s really a matter of deciding which is more important to you.

Winner: Tie

Those who appreciate {{dropdowns.invisible.f16.selected}} often go with {{dropdowns.visible.tech_b.selected}}, while those who like a more {{dropdowns.invisible.f15.selected}} tend to stick with {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}}. Either way, you can’t lose, but here the edge goes to {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}}.

Winner: {{dropdowns.visible.tech_a.selected}}

Simply put, each technology has its own sweet spot, and like they say, {{dropdowns.invisible.f21.selected}}. So even if you’re not a rockstar developer, your teammates will appreciate that.

Winner: Tie


In the end, they’re both great technologies, and {{dropdowns.invisible.f20.selected}}.

Happy coding!
