Finatra vs Lift Framework: What are the differences?
Finatra: Fast, testable, Scala services built on TwitterServer and Finagle, by Twitter. At Twitter, Finagle provides the building blocks for most of the code written on the JVM. It has long-served as Twitter's extensible, protocol-agnostic, highly-scalable RPC framework; Lift Framework: The most powerful, most secure web framework available today. Lift creates abstractions that allow easier expression of business logic and then maps those abstractions to HTTP and HTML. This approach differs from traditional web frameworks which build abstractions on top of HTTP and HTML and require the developer to bridge between common business logic patterns and the underlying protocol.
Finatra and Lift Framework can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Finatra over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Lift Framework.
Finatra and Lift Framework are both open source tools. Finatra with 1.93K GitHub stars and 355 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
