Cocoa (OS X) vs Symfony: What are the differences?

Cocoa (OS X): The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X. Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications; Symfony: A PHP full-stack web framework. Symfony is written with speed and flexibility in mind. It allows developers to build better and easy to maintain websites with PHP. Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.

Cocoa (OS X) and Symfony can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Great community " is the top reason why over 2 developers like Cocoa (OS X), while over 154 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Symfony.

    I really love Django because it is really fast to create a web application from scratch and it has a lot a facilities like the ORM or the Admin module ! The Python language is really easy to read and powerful, that's why I prefer Django over Symfony.

    I use Django at work to make tools for the technicians but I also use it for me to build my personal website which I host on PythonAnywhere.
