Lift Framework vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?

Developers describe Lift Framework as "The most powerful, most secure web framework available today". Lift creates abstractions that allow easier expression of business logic and then maps those abstractions to HTTP and HTML. This approach differs from traditional web frameworks which build abstractions on top of HTTP and HTML and require the developer to bridge between common business logic patterns and the underlying protocol. On the other hand, Mojolicious is detailed as "Perl real-time web framework". Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new attempt at implementing this idea using state of the art technology.

Lift Framework and Mojolicious can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider Lift Framework over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Mojolicious.

Lift Framework and Mojolicious are both open source tools. It seems that Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
