Lwan vs OpenResty: What are the differences?
Developers describe Lwan as "Experimental, scalable, high performance HTTP server". In development for almost 3 years, Lwan was until now a personal research effort that focused mostly on building a solid infrastructure for a lightweight and speedy web server. On the other hand, OpenResty is detailed as "Turning Nginx into a Full-fledged Web App Server". OpenResty (aka. ngx_openresty) is a full-fledged web application server by bundling the standard Nginx core, lots of 3rd-party Nginx modules, as well as most of their external dependencies.
Lwan and OpenResty belong to "Web Servers" category of the tech stack.
Lwan and OpenResty are both open source tools. OpenResty with 7.12K GitHub stars and 984 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Lwan with 5.01K GitHub stars and 524 GitHub forks.
