Phalcon vs ServiceStack: What are the differences?

Developers describe Phalcon as "Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP". Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption. On the other hand, ServiceStack is detailed as "*A configuration free, code-first, light-weight framework *". It is a configuration free, code-first, light-weight framework built on top of ASP.NET for building services and web applications. As the name suggests, it is a stack of services. It provides with just everything that one needs for building end-to-end web services.

Phalcon and ServiceStack can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Phalcon is an open source tool with 9.77K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Phalcon's open source repository on GitHub.

      I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

      I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.
