Description

What is Flask?

Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.

What is Django REST framework?

Django REST framework is a powerful and flexible toolkit that makes it easy to build Web APIs.

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.
