Selecting a web framework based on reusability and pluggability of components

There are plenty comparison of web frameworks on the Internet. Many of them compare web frameworks in general, some of them compare web frameworks with performance measure. Some are comparing in learning curve, popularity, architecture, speed of development, etc.

 

But I am interested to focus on reusability and pluggability of components. In a web development team it is good to be able to use previously developed portions of project in new projects. For example many projects have membership or accounting section. They can be developed once and used more than once in different projects. You can even think of ticketing or organizational structure management across different separate web projects. Goal is reduce development effort during development mid level web projects.

Reusability

Django is introducing itself as to be so, but how about Rails, ASP.NET, MEAN or other common web frameworks?

 

Django has administrative CRUD interface that can save much time during development. Dhango's moto is “the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines”. Every application in Django is consisted of apps. Each app can implement an independent field of business. Django claims that you can join different apps to to create a complete web application.

 

Django has good documentations but its learning curve is high. It seems efficient for database based applications.

Django is not fully object oriented. It is not as fast as Node.js but does not force you to build everything from scratch. It also seem to have less batteries than Node.js and Rails. Its job market is even smaller than Rails and ASP.NET.

 

Rails is opinionated, so many settings and conventions are set by default. Rails developers can learn it faster and develop with more rapidly. It is not very good at performance but have strong community. Rails is popular in Mac users while. It also is easier while deploying as cloud solutions have better support of it. Its rapid development can compete with reusablity feature that Django claims.

 

Previously I wrote about the subject here, here, here and here.

 

What is your opinions and experiences?
