Description

What is Flask?

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

What is Pencil?

A web application microframework for Rust

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.
