Grain vs Groovy: What are the differences?

What is Grain? A strongly-typed functional programming language. Grain is a strongly-typed functional programming language built for the modern web. Unlike other languages used on the web today (like TypeScript or Elm), Grain doesn鈥檛 compile into JavaScript. Grain complies all the way down to WebAssembly, and is supported by a tiny JavaScript runtime to give Grain access to web features that WebAssembly doesn鈥檛 yet support.

What is Groovy? 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.

Grain and Groovy can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

Grain and Groovy are both open source tools. It seems that Groovy with 1.49K GitHub stars and 414 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Grain with 1.21K GitHub stars and 21 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?
