GraPHP vs Volt: What are the differences?

Developers describe GraPHP as "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. On the other hand, *Volt** is detailed as "A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client". Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines.

GraPHP and Volt belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

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, Volt provides the following key features:

  • Instead of syncing data between the client and server via HTTP, volt uses a persistent connection between the client and server
  • When data is updated on one client, it is updated in the database and any other listening clients (with almost no setup code needed)
  • Pages HTML is written in a handlebars like template language

GraPHP and Volt are both open source tools. It seems that Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 forks on GitHub has more adoption than GraPHP with 135 GitHub stars and 5 GitHub forks.
