RSMQ vs Sparrow: What are the differences?

What is RSMQ? A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server. tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.

What is Sparrow? A really fast lightweight queue written in Ruby that speaks memcache. Sparrow keeps messages in memory, but persists them to disk, using Sqlite, when the queue is shutdown.

RSMQ and Sparrow can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

RSMQ is an open source tool with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks. Here's a link to RSMQ's open source repository on GitHub.
