Rails API vs Vuetify: What are the differences?

What is Rails API? Rails for API only applications. Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.

What is Vuetify? Material Component Framework for VueJS 2. Vuetify is a component framework for Vue.js 2. It aims to provide clean, semantic and reusable components that make building your application a breeze. Vuetify utilizes Google's Material Design design pattern, taking cues from other popular frameworks such as Materialize.css, Material Design Lite, Semantic UI and Bootstrap 4.

Rails API belongs to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack, while Vuetify can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".

"Great for quick decoupled apps" is the primary reason why developers consider Rails API over the competitors, whereas "Wide range of components and active development" was stated as the key factor in picking Vuetify.

Rails API and Vuetify are both open source tools. It seems that Vuetify with 20K GitHub stars and 2.32K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rails API with 5.26K GitHub stars and 293 GitHub forks.
