Dropwizard vs Yesod: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dropwizard as "Java framework for developing ops-friendly, high-performance, RESTful web services". Dropwizard is a sneaky way of making fast Java web applications. Dropwizard pulls together stable, mature libraries from the Java ecosystem into a simple, light-weight package that lets you focus on getting things done. 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.

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

"Quick and easy to get a new http service going" is the primary reason why developers consider Dropwizard over the competitors, whereas "Haskell" was stated as the key factor in picking Yesod.

Dropwizard and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Dropwizard with 7.25K GitHub stars and 3.04K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Dropwizard has a broader approval, being mentioned in 51 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Yesod, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Dropwizard and Yesod?
    Spring Boot
    Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
    Play
    Play Framework makes it easy to build web applications with Java & Scala. Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture. Built on Akka, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications.
    Spring
    A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
    Dropwizard Metrics
    It is a Java library which gives you insight into what your code does in production. It provides a powerful toolkit of ways to measure the behavior of critical components in your production environment. It provides you with full-stack visibility.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
