Mojolicious vs Symfony: 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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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 Symfony? A PHP full-stack web framework. Symfony is written with speed and flexibility in mind. It allows developers to build better and easy to maintain websites with PHP. Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.

Mojolicious and Symfony belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

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

Mojolicious and Symfony are both open source tools. Symfony with 21.1K GitHub stars and 7.01K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.

    I really love Django because it is really fast to create a web application from scratch and it has a lot a facilities like the ORM or the Admin module ! The Python language is really easy to read and powerful, that's why I prefer Django over Symfony.

    I use Django at work to make tools for the technicians but I also use it for me to build my personal website which I host on PythonAnywhere.

    Symfony is a set of PHP Components, a Web Application framework, a Philosophy, and a Community — all working together in harmony A framework is a collection of universal, reusable programs that accomplish particular tasks to facilitate the development of software applications. A framework is a pledge of quality, upgradability and maintainability of applications at lower cost. Applications developed using a framework are interoperable with market standards.
