Tendermint Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Tendermint?
A decentralized platform for applications that run exactly as programmed without any chance of fraud, censorship or third-party interference.
Hyperledger Fabric
It is a collaborative effort created to advance blockchain technology by identifying and addressing important features and currently missing requirements. It leverages container technology to host smart contracts called “chaincode” that comprise the application logic of the system.
Fabric is a Python (2.5-2.7) library and command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks. It provides a basic suite of operations for executing local or remote shell commands (normally or via sudo) and uploading/downloading files, as well as auxiliary functionality such as prompting the running user for input, or aborting execution.
It is a protocol and network designed to create a content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system.
It is a lightweight, highly modular, reactive, type safe Java and Android library for working with Smart Contracts and integrating with clients (nodes) on the Ethereum network. This allows you to work with the Ethereum blockchain, without the additional overhead of having to write your own integration code for the platform.
