Falcon vs Propel ORM: What are the differences?

Falcon: High-performance Python framework for building cloud APIs and web app backends. Falcon is a minimalist WSGI library for building speedy web APIs and app backends. We like to think of Falcon as the Dieter Rams of web frameworks; Propel ORM: *A free and open-source object-relational mapping toolkit *. It is an open-source Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) for SQL-Databases in PHP 5.5. It allows you to access your database using a set of objects, providing a simple API for storing and retrieving data.

Falcon belongs to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack, while Propel ORM can be primarily classified under "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)".

Some of the features offered by Falcon are:

  • Intuitive routing via URI templates and resource classes
  • Easy access to headers and bodies through request and response classes
  • Idiomatic HTTP error responses via a handy exception base class

On the other hand, Propel ORM provides the following key features:

  • Highly customizable and blazing fast
  • ORM library for PHP 5.5+
  • Supports schema migration for MySQL, SQLite and PostgreSQL

Falcon and Propel ORM are both open source tools. Falcon with 7.17K GitHub stars and 740 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Propel ORM with 1.1K GitHub stars and 310 GitHub forks.
