Sails.js vs Sinatra: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sails.js as "Realtime MVC Framework for Node.js". Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture. On the other hand, Sinatra is detailed as "Classy web-development dressed in a DSL". Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.

Sails.js and Sinatra can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

"Data-driven apis " is the primary reason why developers consider Sails.js over the competitors, whereas "Lightweight" was stated as the key factor in picking Sinatra.

Sails.js and Sinatra are both open source tools. Sails.js with 20.7K GitHub stars and 1.85K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Sinatra with 10.6K GitHub stars and 1.9K GitHub forks.

Product Hunt, thoughtbot, and New Relic are some of the popular companies that use Sinatra, whereas Sails.js is used by TestLegends, HYPH, and Giguana. Sinatra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 92 company stacks & 34 developers stacks; compared to Sails.js, which is listed in 32 company stacks and 13 developer stacks.

    Scalatra (we had to pick Sinatra on StackShare since Scalatra is has not yet been officially added) is the slickest (not to be confused with Slick for Scala) web/applet server framework we've had the pleasure of playing with in Scala.

    For all intensive purposes, Scalatra is the Scala version of Sinatra (which for anyone who doesn't know is a Ruby web server DSL).
