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. The ASGI specification fills this gap, and means we're now able to start building a common set of tooling usable across all asyncio frameworks.; lighttpd: A secure, fast, compliant, and very flexible web-server that has been optimized for high-performance environments. lighttpd has a very low memory footprint compared to other webservers and takes care of cpu-load. 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.
Uvicorn and lighttpd belong to "Web Servers" category of the tech stack.
