Go vs Spring Boot: What are the differences?
Go: An open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language; Spring Boot: 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.
Go can be classified as a tool in the "Languages" category, while Spring Boot is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".
"High-performance", "Simple, minimal syntax" and "Fun to write" are the key factors why developers consider Go; whereas "Powerful and handy", "Easy setup" and "Java" are the primary reasons why Spring Boot is favored.
Go and Spring Boot are both open source tools. Go with 60.5K GitHub stars and 8.37K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Spring Boot with 39.8K GitHub stars and 25.8K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Go has a broader approval, being mentioned in 901 company stacks & 606 developers stacks; compared to Spring Boot, which is listed in 333 company stacks and 615 developer stacks.
