[erlang-questions] Which technology I should choose?

No offense taken or anything. Just the way you say it makes it sound 
like you didn't know about cowboy_rest. cowboy_rest implements the same 
state machine as WebMachine, and the Cowboy router implements a similar 
routing mechanism to WebMachine, so using Cowboy or WebMachine should be 
equivalent for REST tasks, simple or not. It's the same callbacks and 
concepts etc.

(If you haven't guessed from this post, yes, WebMachine was a big 
inspiration for many things in Cowboy.)
