Lwan vs Pow: What are the differences?
What is Lwan? 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.
What is Pow? Zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X. Pow is a zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X. It makes developing Rails and Rack applications as frictionless as possible. You can install it in ten seconds and have your first app up and running in under a minute. No mucking around with /etc/hosts, no compiling Apache modules, no editing configuration files or installing preference panes. And running multiple apps with multiple versions of Ruby is trivial.
Lwan and Pow belong to "Web Servers" category of the tech stack.
Lwan and Pow are both open source tools. It seems that Lwan with 5.01K GitHub stars and 524 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Pow with 3.47K GitHub stars and 259 GitHub forks.
