Node.js vs Yesod: What are the differences?
What is Yesod? A RESTful Haskell web framework built on WAI. Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.
Node.js and Yesod can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Npm" is the primary reason why developers consider Node.js over the competitors, whereas "Haskell" was stated as the key factor in picking Yesod.
Node.js and Yesod are both open source tools. Node.js with 35.5K GitHub stars and 7.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Node.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4102 company stacks & 4028 developers stacks; compared to Yesod, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
