Which is the fastest ?

Simple framework comparison

Build Status Chat with us License


There are many frameworks, each one comes with its own advantages and drawbacks. The purpose of this project is to identify them and attempt to measure their differences (performance is only one metric).

What is a framework ?

A framework is a set of components working together. The main intention behind a framework is to facilitate (app or service) creation. The way a framework helps any developer may vary from one to another.

A majority of frameworks could be split in 2 parts :

  • full-stack meaning it provides all aspects (-stacks-) from data layer to sometimes deployment
  • micro meaning it provides only the routing part, and let the developer choose any other component for the others


  • ruby, all tools are made in ruby
  • wrk, results are collected using wrk
  • postgresql, results are stored in postgresql
  • docker, each implementation is implemented in an isolated container
  • jq, processing docker metadata
  • docker-machine if you are on macos


  • Setup
bundle install
bundle exec rake config
  • Build

⚠️ On macos, you need to use docker-machine to allow docker usage for each framework ⚠️

docker-machine rm default --force
docker-machine create default
eval $(docker-machine env default)
export FRAMEWORK=php/lumen
make -f .Makefile build 
  • Run
make -f ${FRAMEWORK}/.Makefile collect

⚠️ You need to be on the project main directory ⚠️
