Falcon vs Tastypie: 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; Tastypie: Creating delicious APIs for Django apps since 2010. Tastypie is a webservice API framework for Django. It provides a convenient, yet powerful and highly customizable abstraction for creating REST-style interfaces.
Falcon and Tastypie can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Some of the features offered by Falcon are:
- Intuitive routing via URI templates and resource classes
- Easy access to headers and bodies through request and response classes
- Idiomatic HTTP error responses via a handy exception base class
On the other hand, Tastypie provides the following key features:
- Full GET/POST/PUT/DELETE/PATCH support
- Reasonable defaults
- Designed to be extended at every turn
Falcon and Tastypie are both open source tools. It seems that Falcon with 6.8K GitHub stars and 707 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Tastypie with 3.54K GitHub stars and 1.12K GitHub forks.
