HAML vs Python: What are the differences?
HAML: HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku. Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content; Python: A clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java. Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
HAML and Python can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
"Clean and simple" is the primary reason why developers consider HAML over the competitors, whereas "Great libraries" was stated as the key factor in picking Python.
HAML and Python are both open source tools. It seems that Python with 25.3K GitHub stars and 10.5K forks on GitHub has more adoption than HAML with 3.44K GitHub stars and 544 GitHub forks.
Uber Technologies, Spotify, and Netflix are some of the popular companies that use Python, whereas HAML is used by Kickstarter, Code School, and StackShare. Python has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2826 company stacks & 3632 developers stacks; compared to HAML, which is listed in 113 company stacks and 40 developer stacks.
