Falcon vs Hug: What are the differences?

Falcon: 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; Hug: New Python REST API and CLI micro-framework. Hug aims to make developing Python driven APIs as simple as possible, but no simpler. As a result, it drastically simplifies Python API development.

Falcon and Hug belong to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack.

"Python" is the primary reason why developers consider Falcon over the competitors, whereas "Simple" was stated as the key factor in picking Hug.
