Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.
Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.
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.
I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).
Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
