Description

What is Escher?

A web server for 2016. Escher's built-in web server allows you to create interactive UIs with very little code. It takes care of messaging between Julia and the browser under-the-hood. It can also hot-load code: you can see your UI evolve as you save your changes to it.

What is PHPixie?

PHPixie is easy to learn and does not rely on automagic. PHPixie will fit both newcomers and experienced architects providing ease of use, solid foundation and total flexibility.

What is Tornado?

By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
