Sparrow vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?
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.
What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.
Sparrow and ZeroMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.
ZeroMQ is an open source tool with 5.33K GitHub stars and 1.57K GitHub forks. Here's a link to ZeroMQ's open source repository on GitHub.
