Dropwizard vs Volt: What are the differences?
Dropwizard: Java framework for developing ops-friendly, high-performance, RESTful web services. Dropwizard is a sneaky way of making fast Java web applications. Dropwizard pulls together stable, mature libraries from the Java ecosystem into a simple, light-weight package that lets you focus on getting things done; Volt: A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.
Dropwizard and Volt can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Quick and easy to get a new http service going" is the primary reason why developers consider Dropwizard over the competitors, whereas "Handlebars" was stated as the key factor in picking Volt.
Dropwizard and Volt are both open source tools. It seems that Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.
