Colossus vs Slim: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Slim? A PHP micro framework. Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself.

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

Colossus and Slim are both open source tools. It seems that Slim with 9.95K GitHub stars and 1.84K 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?
