GraPHP vs Hoodie: What are the differences?
GraPHP: A PHP graph DB web framework *. The goal of this project is to build a lightweight web framework with a graph DB abstraction. It should be very easy to create the graph schema with no knowledge of of how the data is stored. Also, the schema should be incredibly flexible so you should never need migrations when adding new models (nodes), connections (edges), or data that lives in nodes; *Hoodie:** A fast offline-first architecture for webapps. Super-simple user management & storage. Great for mobile. We want to enable you to build complete web apps in days, without having to worry about backends, databases or servers, all with an open source library that's as simple to use as jQuery.
GraPHP and Hoodie can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Some of the features offered by GraPHP are:
- Full MVC. Zero boilerplate controllers, models, and views.
- Models are your schema. Defining data is up to you (but not required).
- No migrations. Team members can add new models independently without conflicts
On the other hand, Hoodie provides the following key features:
- Offline by default: Hoodie stores data locally first and syncs them in the background when possible. Great for mobile applications
- One-line signup/signin/signout/resend password and other account management functions
- Document-based storage with CouchDB: no building database schemas
GraPHP and Hoodie are both open source tools. It seems that Hoodie with 3.51K GitHub stars and 314 forks on GitHub has more adoption than GraPHP with 135 GitHub stars and 5 GitHub forks.
