Fat-Free vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?
What is Mojolicious? Perl real-time web framework. Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new attempt at implementing this idea using state of the art technology.
Fat-Free and Mojolicious belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
"Open source" is the top reason why over 5 developers like Fat-Free, while over 13 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Mojolicious.

This compact framework provided me flexibility. I can implement my own design pattern either MVC or something else. What caught my attention the most was its built-in ORM that can accommodate SQL and NoSql database. That means I can have my MongoSql and SQL queries written by those compatible raw sql statements but still creates ORM models the same way as nosql. Consider for example: $user=new DB\SQL\Mapper($db,'users');// for sql db $user=new DB\Mongo\Mapper($db,'users'); // for mongo db then $user = $user->load('id = 1');
Thanks to its high modularity, I can add more fat to my liking. There's also Cortex ORM f3 extension which handles join tables. Also, handles sessions, routing, and config with ease and let you organize them neatly. That's just a few of the handful features without much weight and with fast performance. One drawback is smaller community, but didn't disappoint me.
Web part is fully written on top of Mojolicious. Thanks Sebastian Riedel and all the contributors for the great framework!
Веб бэкенд написан полностью на Mojolicious. Спасибо Риделю и всем участникам за этот фреймворк!
