Description

What is Django REST framework?

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

What is Sinatra?

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

What is Javalin?

Javalin started as a fork of the Spark framework but quickly turned into a ground-up rewrite influenced by express.js. Both of these web frameworks are inspired by the modern micro web framework grandfather: Sinatra, so if you’re coming from Ruby then Javalin shouldn’t feel too unfamiliar.
