Escher vs Trailblazer: 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; Trailblazer: A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

Escher and Trailblazer can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Escher and Trailblazer are both open source tools. It seems that Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Escher with 312 GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks.
