Phalcon vs Trailblazer: What are the differences?

What is Phalcon? 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.

What is Trailblazer? A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

Phalcon and Trailblazer can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Phalcon over the competitors, whereas "Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" was stated as the key factor in picking Trailblazer.

Phalcon and Trailblazer are both open source tools. Phalcon with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 GitHub forks.

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.
