Colossus vs Flask: What are the differences?
What is Colossus? I/O and Microservice library for Scala. 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.
What is Flask? a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug, Jinja 2 and good intentions. Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.
Colossus and Flask can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Colossus and Flask are both open source tools. Flask with 45.2K GitHub stars and 12.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Colossus with 1.14K GitHub stars and 100 GitHub forks.

Flask is a light, yet powerful Python web framework perfect for quickly building smaller web applications. It's a "micro-framework" that's easy to learn and simple to use, so it's perfect for those new to web development as well as those looking to rapidly develop a web application.
I use Flask for times when I need to create a REST API that interfaces with other Python code, or there is no specific reason why I'd want to use Node.JS. I prefer Flask because of its small learning curve, allowing me to get started coding as quickly as possible
This lightweight web framework enables quick REST API development while enabling easy clustering, and the usage of multiple worker processes required to scale the REST API service to meet high volume requirements.
