Mojolicious vs Rails: What are the differences?
What is 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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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.
What is Rails? Web development that doesn't hurt. Rails is a web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.
Mojolicious and Rails can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider Mojolicious over the competitors, whereas "Rapid development" was stated as the key factor in picking Rails.
Mojolicious and Rails are both open source tools. It seems that Rails with 43.6K GitHub stars and 17.5K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Rails has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2321 company stacks & 796 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
