Description

What is Koa?

Koa aims to be a smaller, more expressive, and more robust foundation for web applications and APIs. Through leveraging generators Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling. Koa does not bundle any middleware.

What is Echo?

Echo is a fast and unfancy HTTP server framework for Go (Golang). Up to 10x faster than the rest.

What is Falcon?

Falcon is a minimalist WSGI library for building speedy web APIs and app backends. We like to think of Falcon as the Dieter Rams of web frameworks.
