AIOHTTP vs Tornado: What are the differences?

Developers describe AIOHTTP as "Asynchronous HTTP Client/Server for asyncio and Python". It is an Async http client/server framework. It supports both client and server Web-Sockets out-of-the-box and avoids Callback It provides Web-server with middlewares and pluggable routing.. On the other hand, Tornado is detailed as "A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed". By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

AIOHTTP can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Tornado is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Tornado is an open source tool with 18K GitHub stars and 4.99K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Tornado's open source repository on GitHub.
