Grape Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Grape?
Red
It is both an imperative and functional programming language. Its syntax and general usage overlaps that of the interpreted Rebol language.
Rails API
Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.
ExpressJS
Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications.
Flask
Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.
