Django vs Yesod: What are the differences?

Django: The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design; Yesod: 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.

"Rapid development" is the top reason why over 492 developers like Django, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.

    Django takes the hassle out of building an enterprise web application using Python.

    • admin app for administration
    • ORM for deploying against different database vendors
    • social auth package for authentication with enterprise IdP
    • guardian package for authorization

    Our backend was written in Django. We took advantage of the ready-to-go admin interface as a go-to solution for the client to be able to authorize his users, as well as other functionality, while most of the work was done through the Django Rest Framework.

    Hands down the best Python web framework I've used. Very easy to extend and add apps and go from 0 to full project quickly and painlessly. I built a fully authenticated project with a single endpoint in less than 30 minutes.

    정말 편리하고 많은것을 알아서 제공해 주는 프레임워크 이다. 책의 예제만 진행해서 많이 써보지는 못했지만, 쉽게 쉽게 웹을 개발 할 수 있는 점이 매력적 이다. 게다가 orm 이 기본으로 내장 되어 있고 db 도 sqlite 가 기본으로 되어있어. 그냥 django 만 설치하면 바로 웹개발이 가능하다.

    django는 저의 무기입니다.

    django 이외에 flask로 간단한 restful api를 만들면서 느낀점은 framework 보다 언어가 중요하다는것을 알았고 django가 얼마나 큰 framework인지 알게되었습니다.

    저는 signal 사용을 좋아합니다.
