Netty vs Python: What are the differences?

Netty: Asynchronous event-driven network application framework. Netty is a NIO client server framework which enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It greatly simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket server; Python: A clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java. Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.

Netty can be classified as a tool in the "Concurrency Frameworks" category, while Python is grouped under "Languages".

"High Performance" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Netty, while over 1020 developers mention "Great libraries" as the leading cause for choosing Python.

Netty and Python are both open source tools. It seems that Python with 25K GitHub stars and 10.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Netty with 19.7K GitHub stars and 8.92K GitHub forks.

reddit, Instacart, and Lyft are some of the popular companies that use Python, whereas Netty is used by Outbrain, Appian, and Rapido. Python has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2789 company stacks & 3500 developers stacks; compared to Netty, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Netty and Python?
      Jetty
      Jetty is used in a wide variety of projects and products, both in development and production. Jetty can be easily embedded in devices, tools, frameworks, application servers, and clusters. See the Jetty Powered page for more uses of Jetty.
      Mina
      Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead.
      Apache Tomcat
      Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.
      Akka
      Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM.
      RxJS
      RxJS is a library for reactive programming using Observables, to make it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. This project is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS with better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface.

      Beautiful is better than ugly.

      Explicit is better than implicit.

      Simple is better than complex.

      Complex is better than complicated.

      Flat is better than nested.

      Sparse is better than dense.

      Readability counts.

      Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.

      Although practicality beats purity.

      Errors should never pass silently.

      Unless explicitly silenced.

      In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.

      There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.

      Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.

      Now is better than never.

      Although never is often better than right now.

      If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.

      If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

      Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

      To me, this is by far the best programming language. Why? Because it’s the only language that really got me going after trying to get into programming with Java for a while. Python is powerful, easy to learn, and gets you to unsderstand other languages more once you understand it. Did I state I love the python language? Well, I do..

      Backend server for analysis of image samples from iPhone microscope lens. Chose this because of familiarity. The number one thing that I've learned at hackathons is that work exclusively with what you're 100% comfortable with. I use Python extensively at my day job at Wit.ai, so it was the obvious choice for the bulk of my coding.

      been a pythoner for around 7 years, maybe longer. quite adept at it, and love using the higher constructs like decorators. was my goto scripting language until i fell in love with clojure. python's also the goto for most vfx studios and great for the machine learning. numpy and pyqt for the win.

      Large swaths of resources built for python to achieve natural language processing. (We are in the process of deprecating the services written in python and porting them over to Javascript and node)
