Description

What is Flask?

Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.

What is Javalin?

Javalin started as a fork of the Spark framework but quickly turned into a ground-up rewrite influenced by express.js. Both of these web frameworks are inspired by the modern micro web framework grandfather: Sinatra, so if you’re coming from Ruby then Javalin shouldn’t feel too unfamiliar.

What is Pencil?

A web application microframework for Rust
