Simperium vs uWebSockets: What are the differences?

Developers describe Simperium as "Move data everywhere it's needed, instantly and automatically". Simperium is a new kind of data layer. As your app reads and writes data, Simperium circulates that data everywhere it's needed. You add a Simperium library to your app and initialize it. This library keeps a persistent connection to the Simperium hosted service. The Simperium libraries and service work together to efficiently move data around for your users. On the other hand, uWebSockets is detailed as "Simple, secure & standards compliant web I/O for the most demanding of applications". It is a simple to use yet thoroughly optimized implementation of HTTP and WebSockets. It comes with built-in pub/sub support, HTTP routing, TLS 1.3, IPv6, permessage-deflate and is battle tested as one of the most popular implementations, reaching many end-users daily.

Simperium and uWebSockets belong to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Simperium are:

  • Data transparently moves across mobile, web, and desktop versions of your app
  • Your users can read and write data even when they're offline
  • Multiple users can collaborate with the same data at the same time

On the other hand, uWebSockets provides the following key features:

  • HTTP and Websockets
  • Built-in pub/sub support
  • HTTP routing
