Falcon vs Sinatra: 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; Sinatra: Classy web-development dressed in a DSL. Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.
Falcon and Sinatra can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
"Python" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Falcon, while over 63 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing Sinatra.
Falcon and Sinatra are both open source tools. It seems that Sinatra with 10.6K GitHub stars and 1.89K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Falcon with 6.74K GitHub stars and 700 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Sinatra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 92 company stacks & 33 developers stacks; compared to Falcon, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

Scalatra (we had to pick Sinatra on StackShare since Scalatra is has not yet been officially added) is the slickest (not to be confused with Slick for Scala) web/applet server framework we've had the pleasure of playing with in Scala.
For all intensive purposes, Scalatra is the Scala version of Sinatra (which for anyone who doesn't know is a Ruby web server DSL).
We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome.
