Hoodie vs Yesod: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is Yesod? A RESTful Haskell web framework built on WAI. Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.
Hoodie and Yesod belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Hoodie are:
- 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
On the other hand, Yesod provides the following key features:
- safety & security guaranteed at compile time
- developer productivity: tools for all your basic web development needs
- raw performance
"JSON" is the primary reason why developers consider Hoodie over the competitors, whereas "Haskell" was stated as the key factor in picking Yesod.
Hoodie and Yesod are both open source tools. Hoodie with 3.51K GitHub stars and 314 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
