Fastify vs Spark Framework: What are the differences?
Developers describe Fastify as "Fast and low overhead web framework, for Node.js". Fastify is a web framework highly focused on speed and low overhead. It is inspired from Hapi and Express and as far as we know, it is one of the fastest web frameworks in town. Use Fastify can increase your throughput up to 100%. On the other hand, Spark Framework is detailed as "A micro framework for creating web applications in Kotlin and Java 8 with minimal effort". It is a simple and expressive Java/Kotlin web framework DSL built for rapid development. Its intention is to provide an alternative for Kotlin/Java developers that want to develop their web applications as expressive as possible and with minimal boilerplate.
Fastify and Spark Framework can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Fastify is an open source tool with 11.5K GitHub stars and 708 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Fastify's open source repository on GitHub.
OTOBANK, Distopik, and Detroit Technical English are some of the popular companies that use Fastify, whereas Spark Framework is used by Kasa Smart, AfricanStockPhoto, and Khartec ltd.

I'm building most projects using: Server: either Fastify (all projects going forward) or ExpressJS on Node.js (existing, previously) on the server side, and Client app: either Vuetify (currently) or Quasar Framework (going forward) on Vue.js with vuex on Electron for the UI to deliver both web-based and desktop applications for multiple platforms.
The direct support for Android and iOS in Quasar Framework will make it my go-to client UI platform for any new client-side or web work. On the server, I'll probably use Fastly for all my server work, unless I get into Go more in the future.
Update: The mobile support in Quasar is not a sufficiently compelling reason to move me from Vuetify. I have decided to stick with Vuetify for a UI for Vue, as it is richer in components and enables a really great-looking professional result. For mobile platforms, I will just use Cordova to wrap the Vue+Vuetify app for mobile, and Electron to wrap it for desktop platforms.
