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.
Tornado and Volt can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Open source" is the top reason why over 34 developers like Tornado, while over 2 developers mention "Handlebars" as the leading cause for choosing Volt.
Tornado and Volt are both open source tools. Tornado with 18K GitHub stars and 4.98K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 GitHub forks.

Around the time of their Series A, Pinterest’s stack included Python and Django, with Tornado and Node.js as web servers. Memcached / Membase and Redis handled caching, with RabbitMQ handling queueing. Nginx, HAproxy and Varnish managed static-delivery and load-balancing, with persistent data storage handled by MySQL.
SpreadServe's RealTimeWebServer is built in Tornado. Spreadsheets loaded into SpreadServeEngine instances are projected into browsers using Tornado. Server side recalcs are pushed to the browser using web sockets.
setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.
