Religious Topic: .NET Core/C# vs. NodeJS/TypeScript for API work

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/dotnet

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Klotho - AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Nest

    A progressive Node.js framework for building efficient, scalable, and enterprise-grade server-side applications on top of TypeScript & JavaScript (ES6, ES7, ES8) 🚀

    For Node/TS, check out NestJS which provides abstractions that provide a similar experience to building a .NET Core Web API and has integrations with popular ORMs, etc.

  • .NET Core can absolutely run on Lambda and API Gateway. Check out the demos: While I haven't actually implemented an AWS API Gateway backed by .NET Core Lambdas with EF Core accessing an RDBMS, a quick internet search shows people using EF Core with Lambdas. Can you point to the documentation you found that said you that EF Core requires trimming? As to Gravitron, I assume you meant AWS Gravitron-processor-backed EC2 (sorry, I'm not that familiar with Gravitron)? Is this a hard requirement? Why do you care about Gravitron?

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
