Spark Framework vs Ktor: What are the differences?

Developers describe Spark Framework as "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. On the other hand, Ktor is detailed as "Framework for quickly creating connected applications in Kotlin". It is a framework for building asynchronous servers and clients in connected systems using the Kotlin programming language.

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

Ktor is an open source tool with 6.1K GitHub stars and 470 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Ktor's open source repository on GitHub.

        Spring
        A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
        Micronaut Framework
        It is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications. It features a Dependency Injection and Aspect-Oriented Programming runtime that uses no reflection.
        Go
        Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
        ExpressJS
        Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications.
        Flask
        Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.
