Gunicorn vs Pow: 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, Pow is detailed as "Zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X". Pow is a zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X. It makes developing Rails and Rack applications as frictionless as possible. You can install it in ten seconds and have your first app up and running in under a minute. No mucking around with /etc/hosts, no compiling Apache modules, no editing configuration files or installing preference panes. And running multiple apps with multiple versions of Ruby is trivial.

Gunicorn and Pow can be primarily classified as "Web Servers" tools.

Gunicorn and Pow are both open source tools. Gunicorn with 5.96K GitHub stars and 1.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Pow with 3.47K GitHub stars and 259 GitHub forks.

          Pow is what we use for development on our local machines. It's easy to setup, and easy to maintain since it also eliminates the need for maintaining a /etc/hosts file.
