SignalR vs Entity Signal: What are the differences?

SignalR: A new library for ASP.NET developers that makes developing real-time web functionality easy. SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization; Entity Signal: A real time connection to entity framework core through Signalr Core. It allows you to connect to Entity Framework through SignalR and get updates on subscribed data in real time. This lowers the number of refreshes done by the user and ultimately allows you to do more with fewer servers.

SignalR and Entity Signal belong to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack.

SignalR and Entity Signal are both open source tools. It seems that SignalR with 7.8K GitHub stars and 2.19K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Entity Signal with 153 GitHub stars and 9 GitHub forks.
