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 While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not.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.

Mojolicious and Zend Framework are both open source tools. It seems that Zend Framework with 5.71K GitHub stars and 2.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.

Webedia, Scandlearn, and MV Labs are some of the popular companies that use Zend Framework, whereas Mojolicious is used by Binary.com, WebbyLab, and MynewMD. Zend Framework has a broader approval, being mentioned in 40 company stacks & 22 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      Review ofZend FrameworkZend Framework

      Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.

      The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.
