What is Buffalo?

Buffalo is Go web framework. Yeah, I hate the word "framework" too! Buffalo is different though. Buffalo doesn't want to re-invent wheels like routing and templating. Buffalo is glue that wraps all of the best packages available and makes them all play nicely together.

What is Phalcon?

Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

What is Tornado?

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.

    Review ofPhalconPhalcon

    I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

    I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.

    Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
