Colossus vs Sails.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Colossus as "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. On the other hand, Sails.js is detailed as "Realtime MVC Framework for Node.js". Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture.

Colossus and Sails.js belong to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack.

Colossus and Sails.js are both open source tools. It seems that Sails.js with 20.7K GitHub stars and 1.85K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Colossus with 1.14K GitHub stars and 100 GitHub forks.
