Saturn is a technology supported, trusted and used by members of F# Community
For Consently and Crowded Saturn pairs perfectly with the productivity and safety we get from F# and applies those same principles to create a great functional first MVC web framework. All batteries are included and the possibility to use Saturn with any existing ASP.NET core library is a killer feature. F# with Saturn helps us get results like no other combination in the .NET ecosystem.
I've found Saturn to be the ideal web application framework. The MVC metaphor makes it perfect for teams looking to adopt F# because it supports patterns with which .NET developers are already familiar. Because it makes use of the Task computation expression, it also integrates very well with the rest of the .NET ecosystem. Even in its early stages, the CLI makes stubbing out new features incredibly simple. And, because it's leveraging the Giraffe framework, you know it's fast.
Saturn with its sensible defaults and CEs has allowed us to quickly build a robust api without having to delve deep in to inner workings of ASP.NET Core. This means more time spend on representing our domain and less time wiring configs, IOC, etc.
Saturn not only gives us, at the KPMG Artificial Intelligence Lab, awesome functional abstractions to work with, it also integrates nicely into our huge, corporate IIS driven hosting environments with advanced requirements like Windows Authentication. The ability to run easily on development machines as a self hosted application, even on Linux, gives the edge in day to day development of medium to large web applications. Additionally, the possibility to "fall back" to the ASP.NET Core fundamentals, that Saturn build upon, enables a flexibility and productivity, that is yet to be matched.
At Compositonal IT we are big believers in Saturn. It provides a high quality programming model that is quick to learn and extremely flexible, whilst customers are very happy knowing that it's built on top of the latest Microsoft ASP .NET Core server. We recommend it as the best way to write server-side web apps using natural F#
When faced with choosing a functional web application stack for a rewrite of our flagship LOB application I found that the SAFE stack featuring Saturn is flexible enough to enable integration with legacy systems as well as support for connected and occasionally connected desktop and mobile clients
