Gunicorn vs XAMPP: What are the differences?

Developers describe Gunicorn as "A Python WSGI HTTP Server for UNIX". Gunicorn is a pre-fork worker model ported from Ruby's Unicorn project. The Gunicorn server is broadly compatible with various web frameworks, simply implemented, light on server resources, and fairly speedy. On the other hand, XAMPP is detailed as "*A free and open-source cross-platform web server solution stack package *". It consists mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MariaDB database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.

Gunicorn and XAMPP can be primarily classified as "Web Servers" tools.

Gunicorn is an open source tool with 6.03K GitHub stars and 1.14K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gunicorn's open source repository on GitHub.
