Phoenix Framework vs WordPress: What are the differences?

What is Phoenix Framework? Most web frameworks make you choose between speed and a productive environment. Phoenix gives you both. Phoenix is a framework for building HTML5 apps, API backends and distributed systems. Written in Elixir, you get beautiful syntax, productive tooling and a fast runtime.

What is WordPress? A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

Phoenix Framework belongs to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack, while WordPress can be primarily classified under "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS".

"High performance", "Super fast" and "Rapid development" are the key factors why developers consider Phoenix Framework; whereas "Customizable", "Easy to manage" and "Plugins & themes" are the primary reasons why WordPress is favored.

Phoenix Framework and WordPress are both open source tools. Phoenix Framework with 14K GitHub stars and 1.76K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than WordPress with 12.6K GitHub stars and 7.69K GitHub forks.

Stack Exchange, ebay, and LinkedIn are some of the popular companies that use WordPress, whereas Phoenix Framework is used by The RealReal, DNSBL.io, and inkl. WordPress has a broader approval, being mentioned in 5305 company stacks & 1389 developers stacks; compared to Phoenix Framework, which is listed in 73 company stacks and 46 developer stacks.

Review ofWordPressWordPress

Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content

The Framework is new but has what it takes to take your apps to the next level, right now rails 5 is beta with ActionCable to make real time but I must say ruby isn't the right tool for doing real time but Elixir is really fast and has great concurrency and other erlang features.

Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
