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.
