Sinatra vs Spring Boot: 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 Spring Boot? Create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss. Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
Sinatra and Spring Boot are primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
"Lightweight" is the top reason why over 63 developers like Sinatra, while over 75 developers mention "Powerful and handy" as the leading cause for choosing Spring Boot.
Sinatra and Spring Boot are both open source tools. Spring Boot with 39.3K GitHub stars and 25.5K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Sinatra with 10.6K GitHub stars and 1.89K GitHub forks.
Intuit, MIT, and PedidosYa are some of the popular companies that use Spring Boot, whereas Sinatra is used by Product Hunt, Gauges, and New Relic. Spring Boot has a broader approval, being mentioned in 326 company stacks & 585 developers stacks; compared to Sinatra, which is listed in 92 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.

spring boot allow my team to start building web services quickly and package it in a stand alone application
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).
Spring-Boot allows us to create stand-alone web servers and helps us configure many of our dependencies with sane default, while maintaining flexibility where we need it.
We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome.
