Dancer vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dancer as "Simple but powerful web application framework for Perl". Dancer is a free and open source micro web application framework written in Perl. On the other hand, Mojolicious is detailed as "Perl real-time web framework". Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new attempt at implementing this idea using state of the art technology.

Dancer and Mojolicious belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

Dancer and Mojolicious are both open source tools. Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dancer with 446 GitHub stars and 264 GitHub forks.
