Uvicorn vs lighttpd: What are the differences?

Uvicorn: The lightning-fast ASGI server. It is a lightning-fast ASGI server, built on uvloop and httptools Until recently Python has lacked a minimal low-level server/application interface for asyncio frameworks.

Its advanced feature-set (FastCGI, CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) make lighttpd the perfect webserver-software for every server that suffers load problems.
