Atmosphere vs Phalcon: What are the differences?

Developers describe Atmosphere as "Realtime Client Server Framework for the JVM, supporting WebSockets and Cross-Browser Fallbacks Support". The Atmosphere Framework contains client and server side components for building Asynchronous Web Applications. The majority of popular frameworks are either supporting Atmosphere or supported natively by the framework. The Atmosphere Framework supports all major Browsers and Servers. On the other hand, Phalcon is detailed as "Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP". Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

Atmosphere and Phalcon can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Cross-Browse" is the primary reason why developers consider Atmosphere over the competitors, whereas "Fast" was stated as the key factor in picking Phalcon.

Atmosphere and Phalcon are both open source tools. Phalcon with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Atmosphere with 3.34K GitHub stars and 720 GitHub forks.

    Review ofPhalconPhalcon

    I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

    I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.
