What is Lift Framework?

Lift creates abstractions that allow easier expression of business logic and then maps those abstractions to HTTP and HTML. This approach differs from traditional web frameworks which build abstractions on top of HTTP and HTML and require the developer to bridge between common business logic patterns and the underlying protocol.

What is PurpleJS?

PurpleJS is a simple and capable framework for creating performant web applications without leaving Javascript. It is created in Java to give the flexibility and performance Java provides. It's optional to use Java but it's required if you need to embed PurpleJS in existing applications.

What is Tornado?

By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

        setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.

        Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
