What is Falcon?

Falcon is a minimalist WSGI library for building speedy web APIs and app backends. We like to think of Falcon as the Dieter Rams of web frameworks.

The Reusable, Scalable, and Quick node.js API Server.

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.
