Mojolicious vs Zend Framework: 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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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; Zend Framework: An open source, object-oriented web application framework implemented in PHP 5. Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.
Mojolicious and Zend Framework can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Open source" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Mojolicious, while over 22 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Zend Framework.
