Description

What is Sinatra?

Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.

What is Rails API?

Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.

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.
