Grails vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?
What is Grails? An Open Source, full stack, web application framework for the JVM. Grails is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features.
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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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.
Grails and Mojolicious belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
"Groovy" is the primary reason why developers consider Grails over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Mojolicious.
Grails and Mojolicious are both open source tools. Grails with 2.48K GitHub stars and 945 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Grails has a broader approval, being mentioned in 47 company stacks & 22 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

Some may wonder why did we choose Grails ? Really good question :) We spent quite some time to evaluate what framework to go with and the battle was between Play Scala and Grails ( Groovy ). We have enough experience with both and, to be honest, I absolutely in love with Scala; however, the tipping point for us was the potential speed of development. Grails allows much faster development pace than Play , and as of right now this is the most important parameter. We might convert later though. Also, worth mentioning, by default Grails comes with Gradle as a build tool, so why change?
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!
All the power of the JVM, with the ease-of-use of a modern web framework.
