Iron vs Node.js: What are the differences?

Iron: Extensible web framework for Rust. Iron is a high level web framework built in and for Rust, built on hyper. Iron is designed to take advantage of Rust's greatest features - its excellent type system and its principled approach to ownership in both single threaded and multi threaded contexts; Node.js: A platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

Iron can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Node.js is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Iron and Node.js are both open source tools. Node.js with 35.5K GitHub stars and 7.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Iron with 5.43K GitHub stars and 383 GitHub forks.

Uber Technologies, Netflix, and Medium are some of the popular companies that use Node.js, whereas Iron is used by Abibao, Sahana Software Foundation, and Mifos Initiative. Node.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4104 company stacks & 4042 developers stacks; compared to Iron, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
