Escher vs Lift Framework: What are the differences?

Escher: An Elm-like web framework for Julia. A web server for 2016. Escher's built-in web server allows you to create interactive UIs with very little code. It takes care of messaging between Julia and the browser under-the-hood. It can also hot-load code: you can see your UI evolve as you save your changes to it; Lift Framework: The most powerful, most secure web framework available today. Lift creates abstractions that allow easier expression of business logic and then maps those abstractions to HTTP and HTML. This approach differs from traditional web frameworks which build abstractions on top of HTTP and HTML and require the developer to bridge between common business logic patterns and the underlying protocol.

Escher and Lift Framework can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Escher and Lift Framework are both open source tools. It seems that Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Escher with 312 GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks.
