Dancer vs Zend Framework: 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, Zend Framework is detailed as "An open source, object-oriented web application framework implemented in PHP 5". Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.

Dancer and Zend Framework can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Dancer and Zend Framework are both open source tools. Zend Framework with 5.71K GitHub stars and 2.87K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dancer with 446 GitHub stars and 264 GitHub forks.

      Review ofZend FrameworkZend Framework

      Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.

      The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.
