Description

What is Slim?

Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself.

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.

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.
