Description

What is Flask?

Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.

What is 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.

What is actionhero.js?

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