ExpressJS vs Spring Boot: What are the differences?
Developers describe ExpressJS as "Sinatra inspired web development framework for node.js -- insanely fast, flexible, and simple". Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications. On the other hand, Spring Boot is detailed as "Create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss". Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
ExpressJS and Spring Boot are primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
ExpressJS and Spring Boot are both open source tools. It seems that ExpressJS with 44.6K GitHub stars and 7.48K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Spring Boot with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K GitHub forks.
Twitter, Intuit, and OpenGov are some of the popular companies that use ExpressJS, whereas Spring Boot is used by MIT, Intuit, and OpenGov. ExpressJS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 854 company stacks & 788 developers stacks; compared to Spring Boot, which is listed in 333 company stacks and 615 developer stacks.
