Unison vs DAML: What are the differences?
Developers describe Unison as "Modern, statically-typed purely functional programming language". It is an open source functional programming language based on a simple idea with big implications: code is content-addressed and immutable. On the other hand, DAML is detailed as "Open-source programming language for writing distributed applications". It is an open-source programming language for writing distributed applications quickly, concisely, and correctly. It runs on the leading blockchain platforms which means that you can build your application now and pick which platform works best for you later.
Unison and DAML can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
Some of the features offered by Unison are:
