What is Colossus?

Colossus is a lightweight framework for building high-performance applications in Scala that require non-blocking network I/O. In particular Colossus is focused on low-latency stateless microservices where often the service is little more than an abstraction over a database and/or cache. For this use case, Colossus aims to maximize performance while keeping the interface clean and concise.
Colossus is a tool in the Microframeworks (Backend) category of a tech stack.
Colossus is an open source tool with 1.1K GitHub stars and 101 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Colossus's open source repository on GitHub
