Phalcon vs Yesod: 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.

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.

    Review ofPhalconPhalcon

    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.
