Node.js vs Symfony: What are the differences?

Node.js: A platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices; 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.

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

"Npm", "Javascript" and "Great libraries" are the key factors why developers consider Node.js; whereas "Open source", "Php" and "Community" are the primary reasons why Symfony is favored.

Node.js and Symfony are both open source tools. It seems that Node.js with 35.5K GitHub stars and 7.78K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Symfony with 21.1K GitHub stars and 7.01K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Node.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4102 company stacks & 4028 developers stacks; compared to Symfony, which is listed in 374 company stacks and 277 developer stacks.
