Laravel vs Yesod: What are the differences?

Laravel: A PHP Framework For Web Artisans. Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching; 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.

Laravel and Yesod belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Clean architecture" is the top reason why over 420 developers like Laravel, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.

Laravel and Yesod are both open source tools. Laravel with 53.4K GitHub stars and 16.4K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 831 company stacks & 773 developers stacks; compared to Yesod, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

    Review ofLaravelLaravel

    I moved from .NET and Rails to Laravel, and since then never thought to go back. I feel Laravel framework has the capability to overcome all modern frameworks.

    At Soft Pyramid we are developing rich business applications using Laravel Framework, and never feel any limitation even for complex reporting.We have written REST apis, complex ERP solutions and found awsome in all areas.

    The best PHP framework right now, intuitive and growing up quickly.

    We use Laravel in the outer layer of our Clean Architecture codebases, whereby the domain model does not rely on the framework as a whole.

    See "PHP", I don't really choose to use it, but I can step in and operate in Laravel when necessary. Same goes for quite a few other PHP frameworks, including my own full-featured proprietary stack.

    Laravel is the PHP framework we use. It speeds up development and simplifies a lot of PHP. Complicated at first but saves time once you're comfortable with it.
