Falcon vs Grape: What are the differences?
Developers describe Falcon as "High-performance Python framework for building cloud APIs and web app backends". 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. On the other hand, Grape is detailed as "An opinionated micro-framework for creating REST-like APIs in Ruby". Grape is a REST-like API micro-framework for Ruby. It's designed to run on Rack or complement existing web application frameworks such as Rails and Sinatra by providing a simple DSL to easily develop RESTful APIs. It has built-in support for common conventions, including multiple formats, subdomain/prefix restriction, content negotiation, versioning and much more.
Falcon and Grape can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
"Python" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Falcon, while over 3 developers mention "Well documented" as the leading cause for choosing Grape.
Falcon and Grape are both open source tools. It seems that Grape with 8.87K GitHub stars and 1.09K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Falcon with 6.8K GitHub stars and 707 GitHub forks.
DivShot, TaxJar, and Master Of Code Global are some of the popular companies that use Grape, whereas Falcon is used by HENNGE, Fivestars, and Vokal.
