Tornado vs Redwood: What are the differences?

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; Redwood: An integrated, full-stack, JavaScript web framework for the JAMstack. It is an opinionated, full-stack, serverless web application framework that will allow you to build and deploy JAMstack applications with ease. Imagine a React frontend, statically delivered by CDN, that talks via GraphQL to your backend running on AWS Lambdas around the world, all deployable with just a git push—that's Redwood.

Tornado and Redwood can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Tornado and Redwood are both open source tools. It seems that Tornado with 18.9K GitHub stars and 5.15K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Redwood with 2.69K GitHub stars and 75 GitHub forks.
