Lift Framework vs Yesod: What are the differences?
What is Lift Framework? 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.
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.
Lift Framework and Yesod can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Open source" is the top reason why over 4 developers like Lift Framework, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.
Lift Framework and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
