RabbitMQ vs SignalR: What are the differences?
RabbitMQ: A messaging broker - an intermediary for messaging. RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received; 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.
RabbitMQ and SignalR are primarily classified as "Message Queue" and "Realtime Backend / API" tools respectively.
"It's fast and it works with good metrics/monitoring" is the top reason why over 203 developers like RabbitMQ, while over 7 developers mention "Supports .NET server" as the leading cause for choosing SignalR.
RabbitMQ and SignalR are both open source tools. It seems that SignalR with 7.75K GitHub stars and 2.19K forks on GitHub has more adoption than RabbitMQ with 5.95K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, RabbitMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 941 company stacks & 551 developers stacks; compared to SignalR, which is listed in 22 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
