Description

What is Sinatra?

Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.

What is Rails API?

Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.

What is Kemal?

Lightning Fast, Super Simple micro web framework written in Crystal programming language. Inspired by Sinatra.
