Falcon vs Twisted: 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; Twisted: Event-driven networking engine written in Python. Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python and licensed under the open source ​MIT license. Twisted runs on Python 2 and an ever growing subset also works with Python 3. Twisted also supports many common network protocols, including SMTP, POP3, IMAP, SSHv2, and DNS.

Falcon can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Twisted is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

"Python" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Falcon, while over 4 developers mention "Easy-to-understand concurrency" as the leading cause for choosing Twisted.

Falcon and Twisted are both open source tools. Falcon with 6.74K GitHub stars and 700 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Twisted with 3.41K GitHub stars and 871 GitHub forks.
