Sinatra vs Slim: What are the differences?
What is Sinatra? Classy web-development dressed in a DSL. Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.
What is Slim? A PHP micro framework. Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself.
Sinatra and Slim belong to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack.
"Lightweight" is the top reason why over 63 developers like Sinatra, while over 27 developers mention "Microframework" as the leading cause for choosing Slim.
Sinatra and Slim are both open source tools. Sinatra with 10.6K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Slim with 9.95K GitHub stars and 1.84K GitHub forks.
Product Hunt, thoughtbot, and New Relic are some of the popular companies that use Sinatra, whereas Slim is used by Coderus, Helpful, and Die Coder GmbH. Sinatra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 92 company stacks & 34 developers stacks; compared to Slim, which is listed in 29 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.

I'm about to start a new project to build a REST API, and I got to this point: Yii2 Vs Lumen Vs Slim, I used Yii 1.1 a while a go and it was awesome, really easy to work with, as a developer you don't have to worry about almost anything, just setup the framework, get your php extensions, and start coding your app.
But, I was told about performance and someone recomended Lumen or Slim to work with a micro framework and a less bloated framework, what worries me is the lack of advantages that Yii2 offers, ACF and RBAC as a native tool on the framework, gii, the model validations and all the security props already in it.
Is it worth it? Is the performance so great on those frameworks to leave aside the advantages of a framework like Yii2?
How do you suggest to make the test to prove wich one is better?

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).
We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome.
