io.js vs Yesod: What are the differences?

Developers describe io.js as "A friendly fork of Node.js with an open governance model". io.js is a JavaScript platform built on Chrome's V8 runtime. This project began as a fork of Joyent's Node.js and is compatible with the npm ecosystem. On the other hand, Yesod is detailed as "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.

io.js and Yesod can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Compatible with NPM" is the top reason why over 6 developers like io.js, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.

Yesod is an open source tool with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Yesod's open source repository on GitHub.
