Grails vs Hanami: What are the differences?
Grails: An Open Source, full stack, web application framework for the JVM. Grails is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features; Hanami: Web framework for Ruby. Use the 100+ features that we offer to build powerful products without compromising memory. Hanami consumes 60% less memory than other full-featured Ruby frameworks.
Grails and Hanami belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
"Groovy" is the top reason why over 44 developers like Grails, while over 7 developers mention "A light, fast, and very well documented web framework" as the leading cause for choosing Hanami.
Grails and Hanami are both open source tools. It seems that Hanami with 5.01K GitHub stars and 476 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Grails with 2.48K GitHub stars and 945 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?
