Colossus vs hapi: What are the differences?

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; hapi: Server Framework for Node.js. hapi is a simple to use configuration-centric framework with built-in support for input validation, caching, authentication, and other essential facilities for building web applications and services.

Colossus and hapi can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

Colossus and hapi are both open source tools. It seems that hapi with 11.3K GitHub stars and 1.16K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Colossus with 1.14K GitHub stars and 100 GitHub forks.
