FStar vs Groovy: What are the differences?

Developers describe FStar as "An ML-like language aimed at program verification". F* (pronounced F star) is an ML-like functional programming language aimed at program verification. Its type system includes polymorphism, dependent types, monadic effects, refinement types, and a weakest precondition calculus. Together, these features allow expressing precise and compact specifications for programs, including functional correctness and security properties. On the other hand, Groovy is detailed as "A dynamic language for the Java platform". Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. It makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve.

FStar and Groovy belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

FStar and Groovy are both open source tools. FStar with 1.64K GitHub stars and 147 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Groovy with 1.49K GitHub stars and 414 GitHub forks.

        Some may wonder why did we choose Grails ? Really good question :) We spent quite some time to evaluate what framework to go with and the battle was between Play Scala and Grails ( Groovy ). We have enough experience with both and, to be honest, I absolutely in love with Scala; however, the tipping point for us was the potential speed of development. Grails allows much faster development pace than Play , and as of right now this is the most important parameter. We might convert later though. Also, worth mentioning, by default Grails comes with Gradle as a build tool, so why change?
