Padrino vs Yesod: What are the differences?
Developers describe Padrino as "A powerful full-featured ruby framework built on top of the Sinatra". Padrino is a ruby framework built upon the excellent Sinatra Microframework. Padrino was created to make it fun and easy to code more advanced web applications while still adhering to the spirit that makes Sinatra great!. On the other hand, Yesod is detailed as "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.
Padrino and Yesod can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Microframework" is the primary reason why developers consider Padrino over the competitors, whereas "Haskell" was stated as the key factor in picking Yesod.
Padrino and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Padrino with 3.21K GitHub stars and 497 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
