Geddy vs Tornado: What are the differences?

Developers describe Geddy as "A simple, structured web framework for Node". Geddy is a full stack open source MVC framework based on ruby on rails methodology with built-in authentication module, passportjs and socket.io integration. On the other hand, Tornado is detailed as "A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed". By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

Geddy and Tornado belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

Geddy and Tornado are both open source tools. Tornado with 18K GitHub stars and 4.98K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Geddy with 1.9K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
