Finatra vs Vapor: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Vapor? A type-safe web framework for Swift. Vapor is the first true web framework for Swift. It provides a beautifully expressive foundation for your app without tying you to any single server implementation.

Finatra and Vapor can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Some of the features offered by Finatra are:

  • Production use as Twitter’s HTTP framework
  • ~50 times faster than v1.6 in several benchmarks
  • Powerful feature and integration test support

On the other hand, Vapor provides the following key features:

  • Pure Swift (No makefiles, module maps)
  • Modular
  • Beautifully expressive

"Fast" is the top reason why over 4 developers like Finatra, while over 4 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing Vapor.
