Colossus vs Lumen: 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; Lumen: The stunningly fast PHP micro-framework by Laravel. Laravel Lumen is a stunningly fast PHP micro-framework for building web applications with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Lumen attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as routing, database abstraction, queueing, and caching.
Colossus and Lumen can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Colossus and Lumen are both open source tools. It seems that Lumen with 6.31K GitHub stars and 836 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Colossus with 1.14K GitHub stars and 100 GitHub forks.

I'm about to start a new project to build a REST API, and I got to this point: Yii2 Vs Lumen Vs Slim, I used Yii 1.1 a while a go and it was awesome, really easy to work with, as a developer you don't have to worry about almost anything, just setup the framework, get your php extensions, and start coding your app.
But, I was told about performance and someone recomended Lumen or Slim to work with a micro framework and a less bloated framework, what worries me is the lack of advantages that Yii2 offers, ACF and RBAC as a native tool on the framework, gii, the model validations and all the security props already in it.
Is it worth it? Is the performance so great on those frameworks to leave aside the advantages of a framework like Yii2?
How do you suggest to make the test to prove wich one is better?
PHP Lumen Yii Slim
First our BE was pure PHP, then it evolved to Laravel and now we are on Lumen. Superb.
