Tornado vs Volt: What are the differences?
Developers describe Tornado as "A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed". By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user. On the other hand, Volt is detailed as "A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client". Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.
