Gunicorn vs Mongoose Web Server: What are the differences?

Developers describe Gunicorn as "A Python WSGI HTTP Server for UNIX". Gunicorn is a pre-fork worker model ported from Ruby's Unicorn project. The Gunicorn server is broadly compatible with various web frameworks, simply implemented, light on server resources, and fairly speedy. On the other hand, Mongoose Web Server is detailed as "The most easy to use web server on the planet". Mongoose is built on top of Libmongoose embedded library, which can turn anything into a web server in 5 minutes worth of effort and few lines of code. Libmongoose is used to serve Web GUI on embedded devices, implement RESTful services, RPC frameworks (e.g. JSON-RPC), handle telemetry data exchange, and perform many other tasks in various different industries including aerospace, manufacturing, finance, research, automotive, gaming, IT.

Gunicorn and Mongoose Web Server can be categorized as "Web Servers" tools.

Gunicorn and Mongoose Web Server are both open source tools. It seems that Gunicorn with 5.96K GitHub stars and 1.12K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Mongoose Web Server with 5.51K GitHub stars and 1.61K GitHub forks.
