Netty vs Twisted: What are the differences?

Developers describe Netty as "Asynchronous event-driven network application framework". Netty is a NIO client server framework which enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It greatly simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket server. On the other hand, Twisted is detailed as "Event-driven networking engine written in Python". Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python and licensed under the open source ​MIT license. Twisted runs on Python 2 and an ever growing subset also works with Python 3. Twisted also supports many common network protocols, including SMTP, POP3, IMAP, SSHv2, and DNS.

Netty and Twisted are primarily classified as "Concurrency Frameworks" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

"High Performance" is the primary reason why developers consider Netty over the competitors, whereas "Easy-to-understand concurrency" was stated as the key factor in picking Twisted.

Netty and Twisted are both open source tools. Netty with 19.9K GitHub stars and 9.05K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Twisted with 3.44K GitHub stars and 878 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to Netty and Twisted?
      Jetty
      Jetty is used in a wide variety of projects and products, both in development and production. Jetty can be easily embedded in devices, tools, frameworks, application servers, and clusters. See the Jetty Powered page for more uses of Jetty.
      Mina
      Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead.
      Apache Tomcat
      Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.
      Undertow
      It is a flexible performant web server written in java, providing both blocking and non-blocking API’s based on NIO. It has a composition based architecture that allows you to build a web server by combining small single purpose handlers. The gives you the flexibility to choose between a full Java EE servlet 4.0 container, or a low level non-blocking handler, to anything in between.
      Akka
      Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM.
