Koa vs Spark Framework: What are the differences?

Koa: Next generation web framework for node.js. Koa aims to be a smaller, more expressive, and more robust foundation for web applications and APIs. Through leveraging generators Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling. Koa does not bundle any middleware; Spark Framework: A micro framework for creating web applications in Kotlin and Java 8 with minimal effort. It is a simple and expressive Java/Kotlin web framework DSL built for rapid development. Its intention is to provide an alternative for Kotlin/Java developers that want to develop their web applications as expressive as possible and with minimal boilerplate.

Koa and Spark Framework can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

Koa is an open source tool with 26.9K GitHub stars and 2.47K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Koa's open source repository on GitHub.
