Mojolicious vs Phalcon: What are the differences?

Mojolicious: 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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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; Phalcon: Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP. Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

Mojolicious and Phalcon can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

    Review ofPhalconPhalcon

    I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

    I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.
