Dancer vs Yesod: 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, Yesod is detailed as "A RESTful Haskell web framework built on WAI". Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.

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

Dancer and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Dancer with 446 GitHub stars and 264 GitHub forks.
