Colossus vs Sinatra: 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, Sinatra is detailed as "Classy web-development dressed in a DSL". Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.

Colossus and Sinatra can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

Colossus and Sinatra are both open source tools. It seems that Sinatra with 10.6K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Colossus with 1.14K GitHub stars and 100 GitHub forks.

        Scalatra (we had to pick Sinatra on StackShare since Scalatra is has not yet been officially added) is the slickest (not to be confused with Slick for Scala) web/applet server framework we've had the pleasure of playing with in Scala.

        For all intensive purposes, Scalatra is the Scala version of Sinatra (which for anyone who doesn't know is a Ruby web server DSL).

        We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome.
