Flask vs Hug: What are the differences?
Developers describe Flask as "a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug, Jinja 2 and good intentions". Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind. On the other hand, Hug is detailed as "New Python REST API and CLI micro-framework". Hug aims to make developing Python driven APIs as simple as possible, but no simpler. As a result, it drastically simplifies Python API development.
Flask and Hug can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
"Lightweight" is the primary reason why developers consider Flask over the competitors, whereas "Simple" was stated as the key factor in picking Hug.
Flask and Hug are both open source tools. It seems that Flask with 44.8K GitHub stars and 12.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hug with 5.78K GitHub stars and 341 GitHub forks.
