I find razor pages and mvc easy to use but why is it not that "famous"? every time I see web frameworks its: Django, Rails, Laravel, Express
but razor pages does not appear much on quora, stackshare, g2.

with django its not that convenient I have to manually setup static folder path, template path, register app etc.

why isn't razor pages or asp.net core mvc not that popular?

How do I feel "secure"/"confident" using razor pages?

Who uses razor pages or asp.net core mvc in production anyway?
