What is crystal? And where are Java & C++? Also, who the hell writes web frameworks in Objective-C?
Also... does anyone notice that this test shows that the web framework hosted under the same github account is the fastest.
edit: re: "What is crystal?"
https://github.com/crystal-lang/crystal ... I will say, I'm intrigued. I do love ruby, but unfortunately also hate dynamic typing. Crystal seems interesting.
Doesn't look like the test is warming up the web server. It sleeps 10 seconds (I assume) after starting the server but it might just as well fire some warmup requests.
This is measuring startup time, not actual request time. This seems nearly worthless unless you are looking to host something on AWS Lambda? Does the author honestly believe GET requests to rails sites take 2 and a half minutes on average?
I think PHP is still the most popular web app language, a shame it’s missing out having a couple of it’s frameworks included in the test.
Is the term "framework" really the best descriptor for this type of chunks of code?
I understand wanting to show off your latest project, but comparing a large framework like Rails to your couple hundred lines of crystal is not an honest comparison, not even taking into account the concerns of startup time as others mentioned.
Is this essentially this again?
They appear to have slowed down in the frequency of test rounds though.
For Rust, this benchmark tests Nickel, Iron, and Rocket; all of which are synchronous. Async really helps here!
How important is speed really? It's not like it's the only parameter you can measure a framework by, just happens to be the only quantifiable one.
