Gauge vs Robot Framework: What are the differences?

Gauge: Open source test automation tool that is simple and flexible to use, written in golang and completely hackable. Gauge is created by ThoughtWorks. Gauge let you write tests in plain-speak and refactor fearlessly. Gauge’s pluggable architecture allows you to customize your environment so you can write tests in the language and IDE of your choice; Robot Framework: A test automation framework for acceptance testing and ATDD. It is a generic test automation framework for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development. It has easy-to-use tabular test data syntax and it utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach. Its testing capabilities can be extended by test libraries implemented either with Python or Java, and users can create new higher-level keywords from existing ones using the same syntax that is used for creating test cases.

Gauge and Robot Framework are primarily classified as "Mobile Test Automation" and "Testing Frameworks" tools respectively.
