PHP-MVC vs Tornado: What are the differences?
What is PHP-MVC? Simple and easy to understand MVC skeleton application. This project is - by intention - NOT a full framework, it's a bare-bone structure, written in purely native PHP ! The php-mvc skeleton tries to be the extremely slimmed down opposite of big frameworks like Zend2, Symfony or Laravel.
What is Tornado? A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed. By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
PHP-MVC and Tornado can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
PHP-MVC and Tornado are both open source tools. It seems that Tornado with 18K GitHub stars and 4.98K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Tornado has a broader approval, being mentioned in 69 company stacks & 16 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

SpreadServe's RealTimeWebServer is built in Tornado. Spreadsheets loaded into SpreadServeEngine instances are projected into browsers using Tornado. Server side recalcs are pushed to the browser using web sockets.
setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.
