Grails vs Tornado: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is Tornado? 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.
Grails and Tornado can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Groovy" is the primary reason why developers consider Grails over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Tornado.
Grails and Tornado are both open source tools. Tornado with 18K GitHub stars and 4.98K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Grails with 2.48K GitHub stars and 945 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Tornado has a broader approval, being mentioned in 69 company stacks & 16 developers stacks; compared to Grails, which is listed in 47 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

SpreadServe's RealTimeWebServer is built in Tornado. Spreadsheets loaded into SpreadServeEngine instances are projected into browsers using Tornado. Server side recalcs are pushed to the browser using web sockets.
setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.
Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
All the power of the JVM, with the ease-of-use of a modern web framework.
