Rocket vs Twisted: What are the differences?

Developers describe Rocket as "Web Framework for Rust". Rocket is a web framework for Rust that makes it simple to write fast web applications without sacrificing flexibility or type safety. All with minimal code. 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.

Rocket and Twisted can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Uses all the rust features extensively" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Rocket, while over 4 developers mention "Easy-to-understand concurrency" as the leading cause for choosing Twisted.

Rocket and Twisted are both open source tools. It seems that Rocket with 7.42K GitHub stars and 500 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Twisted with 3.44K GitHub stars and 878 GitHub forks.
