Lift Framework vs Trailblazer: 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, Trailblazer is detailed as "A new architecture for Rails". Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

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

"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider Lift Framework over the competitors, whereas "Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" was stated as the key factor in picking Trailblazer.

Lift Framework and Trailblazer are both open source tools. It seems that Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
