Mojolicious vs Yii: 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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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; Yii: A high-performance PHP framework best for developing Web 2.0 applications. Yii comes with: MVC, DAO/ActiveRecord, I18N/L10N, caching, authentication and role-based access control, scaffolding, testing, etc. It can reduce your development time significantly.

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

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

Mojolicious and Yii are both open source tools. Yii with 4.86K GitHub stars and 2.22K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.

180vita, Utrip, and FreshMail are some of the popular companies that use Yii, whereas Mojolicious is used by Binary.com, WebbyLab, and MynewMD. Yii has a broader approval, being mentioned in 58 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      Of all PHP frameworks, my best and only choice is Yii . Think of this: you have a MySQL database, it contains several tables. Now you want to setup a PHP-MVC site, firstly, you must create Models, Yii have a very handy tool called Gii, you can easily create model with Gii just by one click, Gii will read your database table columns and create PHP models automatically for you. Now you need Controller, still with Gii, it will automatically create all 4 php files for you with Insert/Delete/Update/Select even with Search function.

      Well, now the most modern way is to have a RESTful API, that's even easier with Yii, you even don't need to care about all the columns, just 4 lines of code you can expose your database table as RESTful API with all GET/POST/PUT/DELETE support, even you change your database table columns, you don't need to change any PHP code.

      For security, Yii have embedded authentication and RBAC support. For multi language, Yii have embedded i18n support, all with out-of-box. Just play with it, I bet you will love it.
